Officer Positions Available

Over the next few weeks, I’ll be featuring one of our available positions.  This week:  Treasurer!  We have been blessed to have Tricia Kehn serve as our Treasurer for the past two years.  Are you a person that enjoys working with numbers?  Do you balance your checkbook down to the penny every month?  Are you a whiz with spread sheets?  If so, then WE NEED YOU!  If you have questions about this position, please don’t hesitate to ask!  Just respond to this email with your questions. Having our new treasurer on board before school is out this year would be optimum, to ensure a smooth transition.
