Congratulations and a big thank you to Vivien Finn, State Fall Conference Chairman and her committee for a wonderful day.

Thank you to the club women who attended the State Fall Conference on Monday.  The day was filled with presentations and displays from the Community Service Program Chairmen, along with Advocates for Children, Communications and Day of Service Chairmen. The morning session also included a presentation from the Emmanuel Cancer Foundation which included a short video.

Walgreens who has partnered with the United Nations Foundation Shot@Life campaign  gave 37 flu or pneumonia shots.  That equates to 37 children in a developing country who will also receive vaccines.  Thank you to every member who got their shots at Fall Conference.  This was such an easy way to make a difference in the life of a child.
