Executive Opportunities!

We are very pleased with the response to our urgent message in February 2023 about the future of WTJHS.  In addition to four new candidates for elected offices and non-elected roles on the Executive Committee, new volunteers have stepped forward for other key roles.  However, volunteers are still needed for other vital roles, as well as volunteers who can be available for occasional support, as listed below.
