The UCB Flier, May 2015

President ‘s Message

Dear UCB members and friends,

It was so great seeing so many of you out to our state training conference this year. I want to thank TerriLynne Pomeroy, Sandy Ruconich and their committee for all the hard work, time and talent they put in to make the conference a success. I also want to congratulate our scholarship winners. We are looking forward to our upcoming summer activities. We are thankful for all of those who we see at our activities; however we would love to see some new faces. If you are interested in any of our activities or programs, a good way to get information is to attend our monthly board meetings. They are always open to anyone, and we would love to see you there. Until next month, keep smiling,

Anna Jeffery
