Our Journey

Through the Eyes of Ann | RMHC Gala 2013

October 18th, 2013

As I sit at my desk amidst piles of “works in progress”, I cannot help but reflect on the success of our recent gala and all the hard work and contributions of so many that made it the success that it was.  As a past board member and attendee of galas past, I was able to reap the benefit of…
