Do not let the cost deter you. Funds are available to help with the cost. Talk to Carla Murphy for more info.

Just a reminder, our LWML IA West District Convention at Okoboji is coming up. Get your reservations in soon ($25 by May 14; $30 after May 14). Registration forms are on the bulletin board. See you all there June 28th thru 30th!

Do you like working with youth or want to try? The Board of Youth is looking for a few more people to serve on our committee for the 2018-19 term. are also still in search of a vice chair for that same term. If questions or interested, contact Carla Murphy!
