Time to SPOTLIGHT Another Unit

We need YOU on the District Board next year!

A new feature this year is putting a SPOTLIGHT on unit activities.  We’ll be looking through your webpages and Facebook happenings, as well as the records we keep.  Our goal is to identify the great things you are doing for your schools and highlight one unit each month.  This month we looked at membership campaigns and saw a lot of awesome themes out there!  It was hard to pick just one, but every month is a new opportunity to be showcased.

Our spotlight this month ….
