“I am thrilled to be joining the board of this worthwhile organization. Wiawaka has been a place of solace and joy for me and the place I like to go when my soul needs renewing and relaxation. I look forward to working with the other Wiawaka board members and staff to ensure that other women can take advantage of the many programs and services offered at Wiawaka.
