Thank you to everyone who helped out at the flower sale! We sold out an hour before closing, and it was a great success. Our profit will be very helpful towards enriching our meetings as well as hoping cutting the cost of the SWE Conference next fall! Thank you very much to everyone who helped prepare the flowers, sold the flowers, and most of all those who bought flowers and supported us. Happy Valentine’s Day!
