As most of you know now, at our November 17, 2015 meeting, the membership voted to dissolve the Lexington Chapter of NAWBO effective December 31, 2015.  This was a very difficult decision for everyone, but it had become quite clear that the time had come. Our final meeting will be theholiday event on December 15th.

We all hope that the strong bonds that had been forged between the members will continue to strengthen.

It has been an honor to be your President and I wish nothing but the greatest success and happiness to each of you.
