2015 Community Partner
This year we are recognizing Vicki Crowley for her generous and steadfast design services. In 2011 Vicki lead our rebranding efforts at Sisters Place, refining and defining our new and improved look. Since then she has helped to create memorable brands for each of our signature events and she has reinvented the design of our annual reports. We cannot thank Vicki enough for sharing her talent with us! Please join with us to recognize her in this special way.
We also formally thanked the law firm and attorneys who helped the Century Townhomes Association with a positive resolution to an on-going struggle to keep the water flowing in the housing complex where the Sisters Place families (and another 250 families) live – Strassburger, McKenna, Gutnick and Gefsy and Attorney Amelia Brett. They are truly Legal Champions!!!
