In 2017, we welcomed a new management structure with Mrs. Brooke Conde as Administrative Director and Nicole Falkenheiner as Development Director. With this division of responsibility, we were able to raise more money in sponsorship for our Fishin' Galore event than anticipated as well as add a new fund raising event. Nicole and Brooke have also worked to expand the organization's social media presence in an effort to increase recognition of the organization, as well as appeal to new donors.
