A Message from VISTA-MT
Hi Everyone, I wanted to send a quick message as today is my last day as an AmeriCorps member with BBBS :(. This last year has flown by and I have been delighted to work with each and every one of you. Whether I have talked with you over the phone, corresponded through email or had the pleasure of meeting you in person, it's been great! I wish you all success in whatever your role is here at BBBS and hope to see you around sometime :).
