Dear  Kirsten and Peggy

 

 

Congratulations!

The APS Education Foundation Board has selected the Manzano Mesa Mentor Program effort as one of its Best of Class honorees at the inaugural Gold Bar Gala, scheduled for Friday, April 21, 2017 at Sandia Resort and Casino.

Each of you and a guest are invited to attend, where you will be recognized for your efforts. We expect that several hundred attendees will be with us for the event, which will include Selfless Seniors and the inaugural APS Hall of Honor.

We will be forwarding more information in the coming days, but we hope you can join us. Also, please note that Lawren McConnell of the Foundation will soon be getting in contact with you as we prepare a video on the program to be shown during the event.

 

Again, congratulations, and please let me know if you have questions.
