Wesley this Week…

Hello Everyone,

I just want to say that I am super excited to be the new president of Wesley! Stephen has left me some big shoes to fill, but I’m up for the challenge! I am looking forward to leading you all, and I think it will be a great year. Feel free to contact me at any time with questions, comments, concerns, or just to chat 🙂 I hope to see you at Wesley this week!

If you haven’t already, be sure to pick up one of the free poetry books by Spaar from the Foundation!
