It was an amazing celebration of us and the fun we have together.  The Spring This is definitely the driving force for setting our annual social calendars with its 25 events and party sign ups!  These activities are spread through April 2017 to March 2018; averaging two events each month!  I thank you for your generosity for the many amazing opportunities to help build and strengthen our community and relationships.

Drum Roll Please…

The Spring Thing was a financial success! We raised more than $23K (gross) which is 7.5 percent of our annual budget!  Woo-hoo!  Congratulations everyone, we rocked!  We should all be so proud of how we rallied together to raise such an impressive and unequaled amount in one evening.


Please give me until the end of April to get everyone all of the information that they may need and to tie up loose ends.  I will be sending invoices to all of you who signed up for the remaining sign-ups on Sunday, April 9.  Everyone who donated an event or party, I will be sending you the list of attendees.  I will send emails to everyone that needs to be connected to someone else to receive or redeem their donations.  I will also be correcting any invoices in need of correcting.  If I haven’t listed your issue above or you think it’s something I may not know about, please send me an email letting me know.

Thank You’s
