Dear friends & neighbors,

This is a jam-packed newsletter, filled with lots of important information, so I'm going to keep my letter short. I do want to highlight three things for you to check out:

  • I shared a recap of 2022 on the Goodman blog. So many incredible things happened here last year, and it was thanks to the support of every single person in our community.
  • We have a heartwarming evening of storytelling planned in April – tickets go on sale on Monday. And, next week, in preparation for that event, we're hosting a free storytelling workshop. You should check it out. More info and links right below this letter.
  • March is Women's History Month, and we plan to spend the whole month celebrating Girls Inc. of Greater Madison. Read more below and check out my Eastside News cover story about this incredible program.

Take care and I hope to see you around the center soon,

Letesha Nelson, CEO & Executive Director
