Happy Holidays SLAA! I can’t believe the year is coming to an end already. I know I am not the only one to think this year has flown by! I hope everyone gets to experience all St. Louis has to offer during this magical season and can enjoy all the festivities to come with family and friends.

A HUGE thank you to Third Degree Glass Factory for hosting our 2019 SLAA Silent Auction. We appreciate the perfect set-up for our auction, the fantastic decor throughout the venue, and the glass blowing demonstration for our guests. I also want to thank American Carnival Mart for donating our games, and Russo’s Catering for the delicious lunch.

Our Fundraising Committee made up of Brooke, Tyler and Dawn did a wonderful job on the auction! They work year round to make sure the auction is a huge success for our Carole Moody Scholarship Fund, and we couldn’t do it without them! Thank you, ladies, for your hard work throughout the year to organize, collect, and run the auction as smoothly as you do.

Finally, I want to thank all of the members of SLAA for the last year and having me as your President. If was an honor to work with all of our guests, speakers and venues throughout the year. This is such a great organization and this year has meant so much to me. I truly value the relationships from SLAA and look forward to growing them for the time to come.

Thank you for your time and devotion to this association. We couldn’t do it without our members! If you ever have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

I wish you all a Happy Holidays and a wonderful New Year to come!

Jessica Utterback
2019 President
