I am sending Debra’s notice about applications for the Chatham Trades Board of Directors in again because I want to brag on the organization and director Shawn Poe so much and simultaneously personally urge you talented folks with good brains and kind hearts to swamp Chatham Trades with applications. So many good things have come to pass since this first started as an all volunteer/donated 2 weeks summer camp for developmentally disabled kids in the 1960’s. I am so proud of having been a tiny part of this start and so many really capable people have built a beautiful institution that now helps so many more people. YOU add to this grand tradition, please. YOU.
