You're the Cure - Louisiana
Thursday, November 21, 2019
11AM - 12PM
Join Kim & Julie on Nov. 18th
I can't believe October is almost over! I have loved spending weekends outdoors with my family at pumpkin patches and corn mazes and look forward to the fun activities that November and December bring. While I have started planning some exciting trips and activities, I have also begun to reflect on what I've accomplished this year and what I want to do in 2020.
And at work, I'm doing the same thing with my grassroots colleague, Kim Chidester. Together, we've been reflecting on what an amazing year we've had with volunteers, and in speaking with the Southeast Government Relations team, we've started planning what is needed to have a successful 2020. Kim and I are here for it. Are you?
