What We’re Learning: Branch Meetings

This year’s overall strategic plan is to assess the needs of adolescent girls and develop a call for action with middle school girls being the focus.

Meeting dates are traditionally the 3rd Saturday of the month at 10:00 AM We meet in homes as well as public domains. The outline below is somewhat tentative but reflects our general plan for the year.
