I am very thankful to have met a diverse group of women that share that same passion and are looking to help do “our part” to give back where we can. I have met some amazing women in my 5 years in the club, and I am very excited to continue to be active in OJWC this year, and I am equally excited to see what positive impact our club can bring to our community.
