NEW JUNIOR OFFICERS INSTALLED IN NORTH
FOCUS ON YOUTH
JUNIOR OFFICERS INSTALLED IN
This story was submitted by Madeline Abbott, President of JCDA
Court St. Teresa of Calcutta in Perham, Minnesota. Usually stories
about Juniors are submitted by a senior court member, so it is
encouraging and refreshing to receive this submission from a
Junior. Madeline's mom, Jill, is a member of sponsoring Court St.
Teresa of Calcutta #409 and is Junior Court Advisor. Madeline did
an excellent job writing and preparing this story. We encourage
other Juniors to do the same.
