President's Message
Dear Ladies,
  Our Spring Fashion Show was a tremendous success! It is a huge undertaking to prepare for this event. I want to thank Vice President Margie Logan and everyone who had a hand in making this a memorable day. Many factors contribute to the success of any event, and I want to thank you all. A special thank you goes out to Dress Barn for the beautiful fashions that were modeled and for supporting our organization. Please remember to mention you are a Ladies Auxiliary Member when shopping at Dress Barn to receive a discount. Next up is our Lady of the Year Dinner on Tuesday, May 7th so please make sure your dues are paid if you want to attend. This is going to be a very special evening and I hope to see you there.

Thank you,
Lisa Kahl, President
