The Power of One is our method to keep accountability. In the month of December the majority of our region has been in the Green/Yellow! That's a great achievement. Way to go! Some members have excelled in their activity and scored 100 in The Power of One.
Thank you to all who sponsored new members in 2021! Sponsoring is a service of a different kind and without your contributions, we could not continue to be successful.
