Welcome to the AFWA Flagstaff Chapter Website!

April 2017 Presidents Message

Hi Everyone,

Happy tax Day!   A bit later than our usual April 15th thanks to the 15th falling on a weekend and Emancipation Day, a legal holiday in the District of Columbia, being celebrated on Monday the 17th.             

Tax season can be a stressful time for those of us who do taxes.  I can’t decide if the extra few days was a help or not.   Either way I am happy this tax season has drawn to a close.  I am looking forward to getting back to a regular schedule. 

After such a stressful tax season I am also looking forward to our next meeting, Relaxation techniques with Holly Stone. 

Remember to RSVP.  See you there.

Thank you,

Diana M. Sickels
