Thanks again to Victoria Beach for all of her great work, diligence, and representation of the Council at Board meetings over the past year.

Victoria herself writes to us:

I wish to express my sincerest appreciation to each of you who donated sick/vacation leave on my behalf. Both surgery and recovery went quite well. The fact that I would not be having to take leave without pay was a significant stress reducer!!! I am so thankful for your kindness.
