A ROUSING THANK YOU!
All indications are that it was a record breaking event for MOW2013. Though the numbers are not tabulated as yet, it was clear that the attendance exceeded all previous MOW events. Attendees were greeted with a new layout that received rave reviews. Additionally, the weather was supreme - mid-70's and sunny skies. The SEWEE Association board and staff would like to thank all the attendees for participating in the event. The proceeds from this event will help the SEWEE Association carrying out its mission.
The SEWEE Association board and staff would also like to thank the sponsors for this year's event, and all those who contributed to the silent auction.
