“The entire board gives its heartfelt thanks and appreciation to all who have been involved over the years as members, supporters, underwriters and volunteers.

“We hope you will join us at World Affairs Council at www.dfwworld.org or Children’s Health at http://www.childrens.com; there are so many ways to participate.”
