Pictures from the January 24 Thank You Luncheon

We appreciate our Campaign Volunteers so much. We met on January 24 at the Montgomery Park Building, also known as “The Auditorium,” to express our appreciation to 2016 MCC Coordinators and Champions, and to announce this year’s Campaign Leadership Awards. To view the photos from the event, please click here.

Then show us what you got! We would love to see your photos, videos, and other announcements about your participation in the MCC.
