Our May 13, 2022 meeting at the New Hanover County Northeast Library offered activities to highlight our work throughout this year and to open the door to exciting opportunities for our next biennium. Refreshments were provided during a break in the meeting so that members could get to know guests and newly inducted members.
Connie Marks was installed as the 2022-2024 chapter president to serve with Judy Busick, 1st Vice President, Sylvia Quinn, 2nd Vice President, Linda Jobe, Recording Secretary. Kitty Brunjes will continue as Treasurer and Dorothie Johnson, as Corresponding Secretary.
Three new members were inducted into our chapter: Lizette Day, Caitlin Fortier, and Kimberly McKinney.

With grant funds of $500 each, Haley and Mary purchased reading materials to supplement their first and third grade reading programs. Liz Day represented teachers from Carolina Beach Elementary School who received two $500 grants for coding projects. Liz demonstrated activities from these coding projects that enhanced the school's technology program and supplemented the curriculum.
