Our first virtual meetingAs expected, trying something very different than what we are use to creates its own set of challenges, especially trying to help each other remotely. After helping people get squared away with Zoom, we were able to have an engaging meeting covering a variety of discussion points. This included advice and support directly related to COVID-19 with insurance, masks, and seeking proper healthcare with clear communicate. Great job to our very own Wendi for moderating the discussion!

We also announced we will be awarding our very first recipient of our college scholarship award. A very deserving college-bound senior who will be formally announced and shared in our June or July meeting. Stay tuned!
