So what is in it for ME?

Sometimes Emergency’s or  conflicts with schedules or issues with budget can arise and prevent you from being able to take part in something that would truly benefit you.

Seeing the white of their eyes from time to time seems to be crucial to the way we maintain friendships,” explained Sue Fudge, Director at Thomas J. Fudge’s
