President's Message
Dear Ladies,
  Hard to believe that this is my last message to you as President for this Auxiliary year. I would like to express my gratitude to all the wonderful members who entrusted me to lead the auxiliary this year and all the beautiful women who have supported me with your respect, kind words and most all your friendship that I will always treasure. I hope that you have enjoyed all our fundraising events this year and the success of them all is defined by your continuous support for this auxiliary. I would also like to take a moment to thank my wonderful board for all their hard work and dedication. We worked together as a team this year and without their support I would not have been able to accomplish as much as I did. I would like to once again congratulate Kim Marchetti, PP for becoming the Lady of the Year for 2022 and also a great big thank you to Lisa Kahl, PP who will be coming off the board for all her dedication to the auxiliary these past years. As I pass the gavel to our next President I know that I did the best to my ability to lead the auxiliary and that she will continue to do the same. Thank you again for a wonderful year.

May God continue to bless you all,
Rosemarie Prendergast, President
