Judy Spray has resigned from the PAIR Program

Judy Spray has resigned from the PAIR Program. She will be sorely missed. Judy has done a great job for the past 10 years. The PAIR Program could not have been started without her work and surely would not have stayed together all these years.

Good luck Judy!!!1
