Thank each of you who came out to enjoy an “Evening with the Author” presented by Frances Krumpelman, SCN, author of the first in a series of books written in conjunction with the SCN Bicentennial Celebration in 2012. Both recent gatherings were a success and members of the SCN Family enjoyed hearing Sister Frances as she shared insights and passages from her book.
