February 2020 - Three Rivers District Update

Diana Alejandro, Three Rivers District Update

Hello Three Rivers District!


It’s February, and the groundhogs have made their predictions! Punxsutawney Phil proclaimed that spring will come early this year; but Woodstock Willie warned we’ll have another six weeks of winter. Who will be right? Well, it’s anyone’s guess! No matter what the weather brings, we know that March 19th will mark the first day of spring. Have a great month, and please see below for some upcoming Three Rivers District CEU events! As always, I welcome suggestions for events, venues, and presenters you’d like to have in our district. Please feel free to reach out via e-mail at Threerivers.naswil@socialworkers.org.
