Hello Sandy,

Thank you for reaching out so quickly following Charleston – and for making the connection with Diane Morgan.

I agree – our chapters have much in common.  I am excited to report that we had a successful first BOD meeting last week and nearly every member has responded positively (22 of 25 members) to attending our first holiday event coming up on November 16.  So, I am very excited.  We are trying to determine when to accept additional members.  Our plan, for the moment, is to create a solid base with existing members.

I would very much like to stay in touch with you, too.  Sharon Olson has said so many wonderful things about you and the Ann Arbor Chapter.

Hello Dame Donna, I would enjoy meeting and dining with you on one of your future trips to Portland.  Let me know when you are next planning a visit.
