Winter seems to be hanging on this year with a record two feet of snow still on the ground, and temperatures expected to be below 25° this weekend. I for one am ready for this to be over!
I spent this weekend huddled in cozy blankets and dreaming of warm weather, long days, and the beautiful hanging basket I am going to make at the April Monthly Gathering. Something to look forward to!
As COVID restrictions ease and more people are vaccinated we hope to be able to offer our members the choice between in person and online events and activities. As an organization we will continue with our commitment to follow the MOA guidelines regarding social distancing, masks, etc, and to monitor these guidelines as they evolve. We encourage all of our members to consider their own risk and decide on their comfort level before participating in any APWA scheduled activities or events. Open and respectful communication will help everyone feel safe and respected.
We have assembled our Nominating Committee and will be reaching out to members that have indicated their interest in serving on the board in their original applications soon. If you want to learn more about the board and the positions available please do reach out!
We were very happy to have received several very worthy nominations for our non-profit partnership for the 2021-22 year.

We are pleased to share with you that Anchorage Youth Orchestra has been selected, and you can read more about their work below.
As always, I am happy to hear from our members, so please don’t hesitate to reach out.
