November 2020 - Jane Addams District Update
Patricia Schofield, Jane Addams District Chair
Hi Jane Addams District Members,
As the fall season arrives in full spender, may it bring hope for an end to this pandemic and spread peace across our country.
A sincere welcome to all new and renewing members. Thanks for your continued support.
Last month, our planned webinar for October 20, 2020, was cancelled due to lack of enrollment. The goal was to evaluate our own professional growth, strengths, and skills. It appeared to generate some interest, but the timing must have been wrong. I hope our guest speaker, Steve Ritter will consider presenting in mid-January.
