At the December chapter meeting we will provide a high level overview on cultivating a grateful culture, as well as hear more from three local charities and the opportunities they have for volunteers, as well as items that you can bring to the December meeting to support their organizations -- Greenhouse 17, Alzheimer’s Association and Lighthouse Ministries.
