 A big thank you to Debbie Wasylyshyn! 

We would like to especially thank Debbie Wasylyshyn on behalf of the membership and the rest of the Executive committee for her many years of service to our local and in particular, for her years that she has served on the Executive as 1st VP.  Debbie’s contributions over the years has been immeasurable. At this time, Debbie has decided to not let her name stand for the position of 1st VP for personal reasons but she will continue to remain active in our local. Thank you so much for your dedication Debbie! All the best in your future endeavors!
