Note From President Betsi about Dream it! Be it!
The Dream It, Be It program that Marsha and I are working on is coming together. We have commitments from 6 dynamic women to make presentations to the girls. Publix will be donating the food (through the City of Clearwater), and Christa Smith at the North Greenwood Library has been wonderful. She has printed up flyers, handouts and posters to pass around the neighborhoods to let the girls know about this program.
