CURE's River History Weekend is back this year, and it will take on a new look as we combine it with CURE's 22nd Annual Meeting. There will be three days full of activities, presentations and networking opportunities. Check out the full schedule of events here. Additional activity details will be added soon. 
Three Director positions are up for grabs in this year's election at CURE's 22nd Annual Meeting and Celebration.  The meeting and election are scheduled for Saturday, May 3rd at Bootleggers Supper Club in Granite Falls.  Director's terms run for two years.
On a Monday evening, 10 Millennials and a Baby Boomer gathered in a church basement.  It sounds like a bad joke, but the refurbished church basement was home to CURE staff Sarina Otaibi, and the Millennials and Baby Boomer had come together for a pretty serious focus group on transitional leadership and social change.
