NEWSLETTER : 2020 Q2-4 Released

This Dear Fellow Members,

2020 may be a year many of us would rather forget, but it was also a year that highlighted the incredible things we can accomplish together as a community. The attached 2020 NEWSLETTER just highlighted a few.

On behalf of the Leadership Team, I would like to thank all members who shared their stories and photos. But special thanks go to the first responders and frontline workers who kept us safe and healthy, without forgetting the essential personnel who kept the economy moving during the Pandemic. We all, sincerely, appreciate what you do for living.
