Happy Spring! We hope you will enjoy our late Spring E-newsletter. It's been a busy time at AboutFace with so many events on the go! A special thanks to all our members who took part in the 100 Experiences in 100 Days - they raised over $4,500! This is a new initiative for AboutFace and one we hope to grow over the years.
In this issue, we are featuring lots of feel good stories that relate back to AboutFace events: the Annual Golf Classic, Leap of Faith, and Camp Trailblazers! Remember to check out the Announcements section and read about the CDA Award and all the local fundraising our members held over the past few months!
