Vigil Chatter


If you would like to submit announcements or pictures to add to the Vigil Chatter please email Stephanie at stephaniehattan91@gmail.com.  Here are some things we are looking to add to the next chatter, a message from Stephanie:


My name is Stephanie Hattan and I am taking over the information gathering
portion of the Chatter. The other part will be taken over by Amanda
Phillips who does amazing design things and will be making up the
newsletters now.

We are looking to add some opinions of the reunion to our next Chatter newsletter and we want to ask you:

What did you think of the reunion? What was your favorite part? Would you
like to share some of your pictures? If so, please attach them to your
response and we may put them in the newsletter!

For future reference, is there anything you thought we could have done
better on? Any places you would like see put in the tour? Information you
would have liked to receive? Any general tips?

Thank you! - Stephanie

A very big thank you to John Vigil, Carolyn Romero, and JoAnn Phillips for their service in making our foundation all that it is to date, without their hard work we would not have been as successful as we have in helping promote education in our family. THANK YOU!
