January 2020 - Three Rivers District Update

Diana Alejandro, Three Rivers District Update

Happy New Year to the Three Rivers District!

I hope you were able to celebrate these holidays to the fullest and that the memories you created will carry you through the coming months. The new year a time of reflection toward the future and making resolutions. My resolution is to be more present with my family, friends and colleagues – and to continue spreading the mission of NASW.
