Thank you to everyone who participated in and attended the State Fall Conference. With only a few minor issues we were able to hold our first, and hopefully only webinar. I apologize if anyone had problems getting on to Zoom, but we did record the program so if you did not get on, we might be able to send you the video. Please contact the State Chairman if you have any questions or would like more information about their programs. Hopefully, Jolie Frankfurth, GFWC Treasurer, was able to provide you more insight on the reasons for the changes to the Community Service Programs and Partners now known as Associates.

Ray Chimileski, Operation Chillout, provided background information on why they started helping homeless vets. If you would like a program for your Club, virtual or in-person, please contact Barbara Rose, SSP Vice Chairman, (908) 453-3734 and email wplrose@hotmail.com.
