While our world is still dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic, we have been fortunate to resume some of our pre-COVID activities. One of these activities is our Annual Meeting. We held modified meetings in 2020 and 2021, however there is something very special about gathering together as a community to install new board members and celebrate the dedication and achievements of our lay leaders. Please click here for the 2022-2023 JFGD Board slate.

I am delighted that we are resuming our Annual Meeting for 2022. This year’s meeting will take place this Wednesday, August 17th beginning at 5:30pm at the CJCE (525 Versailles Drive Centerville, 45459).
