Happy New Year…

This means a lot more to me this year. I have been on the board of Komen Quad Cities since March 2009. Today marks the end of Komen Quad Cities – we have merged with the Komen Iowa and Komen Siouxland affiliates to form Komen Greater Iowa. It’s been a very long process with lots of meetings and numerous phone calls.

Our office is going to still be maintained here in the Quad Cities and our current staff will also remain. We will continue to raise money to fund grants in the area as well as research to find a cure and our main fundraising will be around the Quad Cities Race for the Cure.

Three of our current board members will join the Komen Greater Iowa board and this includes me. I will be on the finance committee as well as serving as their treasurer.

Last month, the Komen Quad Cities board and staff members met at Granite City to celebrate the final board meeting – along with some of the spouses. We enjoyed dinner, drinks and shared lots of memories!
