We lost a great peer and a great leader last week when Wiliam Ruff passed away. Most of you knew him in one way or another. When I met him almost 3 years ago I was immediately impressed. As my relationship grew with him I became more impressed. He referred to me as “Director”, which increased my confidence and made me feel respected. He also always treated his other peers with the utmost respect. William was an amazing peer and an interesting person with a great sense of humor. We all mourn his loss.

Local artist’s painting of Lady Liberty gives us hope during this pandemic.

Tammy Serio is a Peer who painted Lady Liberty as a symbol of encouragement that Americans will get through this pandemic. 

APPR Begins 2 weeks from today.

The course will meet Thursdays, May 7-May 28. There are 2 sessions at 10 am and 1 pm. Register by email education.wingsacrossal@gmail.com.
