As some of you know, our Founder and Executive Director, Gayle Hutchens, has been battling some health issues and has been in and out of the hospital recently. Her dedication to the organization continues, but her health is our primary concern and for that reason, we will be postponing the Annual Conference and helping out in many of other areas of the organization that Gayle usually oversees. If anyone has any questions regarding her absence, organization of events, fund-raising or scheduling, please contact Rhaya Shilts using this online form or at rhayashilts [at] yahoo [dot] com.
