THE CLOCK IS TICKING, WE ARE GETTING READY FOR SPRING!

Hello Members:

Mark the date! The New England Region of the WOCN will be holding its Quarterly Business Meeting on March 30, 2021 at 7:30 pm.  This will be a virtual meeting via Zoom. Please plan on attending.  We want and need your input to make the region what YOU want it to be, meeting YOUR needs.

We have a great meeting planned and will offer Educational discussion, and our usual business discussion. President Elect Donna Loehner and her team at Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital in Boston will present a COVID-19 case with discussion to learn what others in the region are doing to combat Covid-19.  

We will also be launching our Bidding Owl Auction which will serve as a fundraising event for Youth Rally, to replace the in-person auction we missed last fall. We are counting on you, our members, to make this a success. Youth Rally needs your help. We need donations for items to auction off! Please review instructions below.

Youth Rally needs our support! Due to Covid-19 Youth Rally will be a virtual event this year. Hopefully they will be able to return to in-person camp in the near future.  They need our support to keep this awesome experience open to young adolescents living with conditions of the bowel and bladder.

As we have for many years, lets come together in this new way to show our support.

If you have questions about Youth Rally go to https://youthrally.org/ for information.
