Thank You from our Heritage Award Recipients

Dear Lois and Elaine:
Thank you both so much for nominating me for the 2017 South haven AAUW Heritage Award! I thank you and the other members of the SH AAUW for honoring me with the presentation of the award. I was truly touched.
Good evening Lois and Mary Lynn,
I wanted to thank the AAUW membership and especially you two for the honor bestowed upon Ed and me at the Spring Tea. Being recognized by our community really warmed our hearts.
Please extend our gratitude to the entire membership. There are so many who deserve recognition that we were touched and honored.
We miss South Haven and all our many friends there.
Kindest Regards,
