President's Note

大家好嗎! Hello Everyone! IWAT members have had a wonderful busy beginning to Spring! AND May is even more amazing!

Not only do we have our normally scheduled activities, but we also have the Flea Market and preparations! A group is also set to go visit indigineous tribes with Cheryl Robbins as our guide. We have our elections for our new board members! We have our membership drive for early bird renewal! Our nominees for the board have been notified and asked if they were available to help lead us. We also have some volunteers for committees. What can you do to help? Join a committee! Reach out and use or develop your talents! Click on Links to sign up to help out with the Flea Market at Morrison AND join in the Insense Workshop on May 12. Please be sure to email me if you are moving away this summer. We'd like to let everyone know where we can find you next.

Much love to you and yours, Rebecca
