Highlights from the Clara Barton Society Kick-Off!

On October 4, 2012 we hosted a Clara Barton Society reception to honor our members throughout the Columbia Region. We are thrilled that we had representation from all six chapters in our region.

Thank you to all of the members that came, our guest speakers, our corporate partners and our wonderful staff for planning such a great event.  It truly was a wonderful evening at the Governor’s Mansion!

Here are highlights of the evening…
