June 2017 Presidents Message


Hi Everyone,

Happy Father’s Day to all our fathers out there. I can’t believe it is June already! 

Being the AFWA Flagstaff Chapter President for this past year has been quite an experience.   I will admit that I am happy to pass the gavel.   But first, I wanted to take this opportunity to say Thank You!  Thank you for the opportunity to lead our group.  Thank you for your belief in me.  And Thank you for all of the support and encouragement I received throughout the year.  I could not have done it without you!

We will install our 2017/2018 Slate of Officers at the June meeting.    I know that we will be in good hands with them.  I am looking forward to staying involved, but in more of a supporting role. 

Our Chapter is holding a garage sale on Saturday June 24th at 3091 S. Troxler Circle (University Heights) from 7am to approximately 1pm.  Please coordinate to drop off your donated items on Friday June 23rd. 

Our June speaker will be Attorney Kathryn Mahady with Aspey, Watkins & Diesel, PLLC.  Kate will be giving us an Overview of different areas of law, with a judgement-free Q&A.   So come with questions.

Remember to RSVP.  See you there.

Thank you,

Diana M. Sickels
