Susan shares two-decades worth of experiences in the shoes of Ida Raderstay, the spouse of a relocating employee. Through this unique and comprehensive story, you'll be faced with real-life scenarios that will challenge you to find more genuine ways to connect and come alongside individuals in their relocation journey.

November Meeting Food Drive
During our November meeting, we will be collecting food items to help support our charity Northwest Harvest. Northwest Harvest is Washington's own statewide hunger relief agency. Their mission is to provide nutritious food to hungry people statewide in a manner that respects their dignity, while fighting to eliminate hunger. For more information, please visit their website at http://www.northwestharvest.org
Because the need for food is so great right now we really want to collect as much food as possible. To encourage food donations we will be giving away 1 raffle ticket for each food item you donate. The more you bring, the better chance you have to win one of our fabulous prizes! Some examples of our prizes include a 2 night stay in Seattle, Amazon Fire TV Stick, Gift cards and more!
