The January 23, 2015 meeting was busy and fun! Antoinette Sedillo-Lopez, Executive Director of Enlace Communitario, was on hand to provide an overview of the organization and explain how their programs developed. President Jill Bartel presented Ms. Sedillo-Lopez with a check on behalf of the Bead Society.
