First Some Sad News
We are sad to announce that Kristi Stone has stepped down from the Board of Directors Chair. She is still a member and will continue to be a part of the group, but due to personal circumstances she is unable to perform the duties required for the position.
We understand the complexities of life and hope Kristi the best as she works to simplify her life to focus on the things that are most important.
