    United in Service

    If I haven’t met you yet my name is Kristin Reilly and I am the new communications manager with the Coalition. After the events of the past week, we feel like now more than ever our community needs to come together for our cause, get our hands dirty, and remind ourselves how powerful our Coalition can be. This is why I am reaching out to you today to invite you to the first ever United in Service event on Tuesday, November 15 at 2pm at the Annapolis Harbour Center. We will be helping the South River Federation with a trash pick-up at their restoration project there, followed by a happy hour at Gordon Biersch down the road.

    If you are able to attend, please shoot me an email (reillyk@nwf.org) and let me know so I can have a sense of a head count. If you are unable to make it, we encourage you to collaborate with fellow Coalition members and create United in Service events in your area over the next few weeks.

Hey... where's the rest?

As we transfer data from the old platform to the new one, we're taking baby steps. If it seems like something is missing, we'll likely be added it over the next few weeks. If you need something in particular, feel free to ask.
