FAMILY Workshops

The Jr. League in conjunction with UH is arranging a two-day workshop on "The Family in Hawaii." The LWV has been asked to moderate eight workshops on Thursday, March 30, the second day. We have many members qualified to be moderators or "facilitators." Please let Helen Griffin know if you can help. There will be more information in the coming VOTER.
