Summer 2014 in Chiapas
July 22, 2014
Board members Linda Finch, Martha Rudersdorf and I were in Chiapas in June. We had a great visit and I’m delighted to tell you a bit about it. Every summer we have the honor of presenting new scholarships and recognizing the girls and women that are continuing. Three new scholarships were given, and 16 of the 18 recipients in 2013 are continuing their academic careers.

Dia de Muertos Dinner and Auction
November 6, 2014
Last Saturday was our biggest fundraiser of the year. Board members Molly and Steve were in the kitchen bright and early to prepare the chili relleno casserole, the corn and tomato salad and the beans for that evening’s dinner. The rest of the board worked on setting up the auction, decorating, setting tables and making sure everything was perfect for those who would attend.
