Welcome to the AFWA Flagstaff Chapter Website!

December 2017 Presidents Message

Hi Everyone,

Hope everyone is having a great holiday season so far.  This month, the Flagstaff AFWA chapter is celebrating its 35th anniversary.  According to Kay Pitt, the charter dinner was held on December 3, 1982 at Little America.  Congratulations to us all!

On November 29, we learned about social justice from Sarah Douthit from the County.  Very informative and left me thinking about things differently.

On Wednesday December 13 at 11:30, we will have our annual gift exchange at Oregano’s on 980 N. Country Club Drive.  Note this is the Country Club location not the Riordan location.  Please bring a gift worth $20 to participate.  Looking forward to a big turnout.  The cost of lunch will be $15.

Please RSVP to Abby Velazquez by Friday December 8.

Thank you,

Erin Chawick
