Dear Friends of Armenia,

Please join me in welcoming Maggie Woznicki (A-18) and Kellianne Lauer (A-19) to the FOA team! FOA has amazingly had a history of all the Board Presidents (David Barshes A-14, Robert Dietrich A-15, Wayne Burt A-16 and Vanessa Bowie Rankin A-16) serving in Gegharkunik Marz. (Must be the Water?) So Maggie, who called Sevan home, will fit right in! Kellianne will take Maggie’s spot on the grants committee and has a great deal of experience in that field.

I know that both ladies will be a welcomed addition to the amazing teams they are joining. As follows are a few lines of thanks. I owe a great deal of gratitude to Wayne Burt (A-16, Secretary/Treasurer) who nominated me last year and who was the voice of reason to balance out my eccentricities, Hedley Bond (A-17, Membership) whose optimism, tenacity and accent never fail, David Coe (A-17, Technology) is a man who can solve any problem without breaking a sweat, and Kevin Crookshanks (A18, Communications) whose thoughtfulness makes every newsletter memorable.

Finally, I thank you as members of the Friends of Armenia for continuing to fund projects that enhance the lives of our extended Hy family. I truly believe that Friends of Armenia works as an NGO because; we help support the goals of Peace Corps volunteers that cannot be met by other means.

Hajo Majo,

Vanessa Bowie Rankin

Lame Duck FOA Board President
