Many thanks to our Charitable Projects Committee – Jane Ellison, Robin Schachat, Martha Marsh, Jennifer Moeller, Maura O’Donnell-McCarthy, Lynn Lehmann, Margaret Ransohoff and Nancy Zambie – for their time and thoughtful consideration of the proposals we received. They provided informed and diverse perspectives, and we all felt confident and comfortable with the outcome of our discussions. And many thanks to the SLGC members who contributed to the CP Fund this year. A complete list will be published in the July newsletter.
