President Pamela's meeting was definitely a Purple explosion!!  She explained what being a Purple Person means: "They bring their family, friends, and communities together, and they speak up for what’s right. They are kind and hardworking, and they love to laugh" ...so her challenge this year is for us all to become, or continue to be, Purple People....
