From the President . . . 

As I sit here trying to write my final message as your President, a wave
of emotion has come over me, excitement, sadness, and total gratitude!
I'm very honored to have been given the opportunity to be the President
this year! In the beginning I was very nervous, as I have never been
comfortable standing and speaking in front of a crowd, but you all made
it very easy, and I'm so glad that I have been able to confront my fear
and conquer it! I'm so very proud of our organization, and I must give
kudos to all the committee chairs, they all make the job of being
President so much easier! Thank you all for giving me the opportunity to
lead our guild, it has been a very rewarding experience. I hope you all
have a wonderful summer, take time to smell the Roses!
