“It always seems impossible, until it’s done.”

– Nelson Mandela

Do you have ideas about how (or how often) funds can be raised, should be raised, or shouldn’t be raised for Whittier’s PTA and its initiatives?  If so, join us for a general fundraising conversation on March 12 at 7:30 p.m. at the Downers Grove Public Library.   Can’t make it but have a thought you’d like to share?  Contact Rita Brezina (erbrezina@gmail.com) or Valerie Hardy (valerie_m_stone@yahoo.com).

We are so fortunate to have a wonderful Whittier Community. Thank you for all of your support!
