FANHS Wisconsin Chapter Receives Award

I scanned the image so everyone can see their accomplishments. Great team work! As Mrs. Durtka said, "I did not give it to you, you earned it!" (With a smile and a hug). Happy Thanksgiving to you all! We earned it and as Kuya Ernie mentioned, "Round One" Ding!" Thanks for great news, Emraida. And... CONGRATULATIONS to FANHS Wisconsin Chapter!
