Stayed tuned for the New Newsleaf
New Format, New Focus, New Ideas
Coming in February, you will see our updated electronic newsletter coming to your inbox once a month. Incorporating feedback and recent suggestions, Helen Laitinen, one of our many extraordinary volunteers, will coordinate the upcoming changes for the Boxerwood Newsleaf. Helen has been assisting in the office for almost one year, served for many years as director of non-profits in Massachusetts, and loves to learn new things. Helen brings her years of nonprofit experience to Boxerwood and has been a valuable asset bringing fresh ideas, creativity and a joyful presence.
As always, Boxerwood would not thrive without all the community support we enjoy – through your volunteer time, your contributions, and your enjoyment of our programs, woodland gardens, and special events. We hope to see you all in 2019!
