NJSFWC Proposed Resolutions

Number of votes cast: 207

The majority voted in favor and the Resolutions are adopted.

Thank you to Legislation/Resolutions Chairman Carole Speechley, and her committee for giving us Resolutions of which we can be proud.  They now become part of our history of making changes in the world around us.

Members are reminded that clubs and individuals should write to the appropriate Legislators to express their support for the legislation mentioned in these resolutions. One letter from the Legislation/Resolutions chairman is good.  One letter from her and one hundred from our members is even better!

—Mary E. Wolfe, NJSFWC President
