As this newsletter hits your inbox, we are in the midst of the spring that refuses to come (or is it the winter that refuses to go?).
Well, we still know it's spring because the MASWA Spring Luncheon is right around the corner. Watch for registration details. And mark your calendars for this fun annual event - Tuesday, May 21st at the lovely Metropolitan Ballroom. By THEN I'm sure we'll have put our shovels away for good. (I'm hoping, anyway)
