Letter From Our President

Time to Renew! Our organization thrives because Dames renew their membership every year. The time has come, so please renew at your earliest convenience. The form for recording your participation this past year is at the end of this letter. We ask that Dames be active members of our organization by attending programs, providing a donation to our scholarship fund, or serving our chapter in other ways and staying in touch and connected on the Websites for LDNY (new and greatly improved!) and LDEI. read more

Best regards,

Linda Lawry
