MEND begins its 25th year of service to the Upper Wenatchee Valley this year. A great milestone, which we will be celebrating throughout the year. The story of MEND is the story of the generosity in time and treasure of all of you. You truly transform lives and make the Upper Valley a better community.
We dedicate our annual report this 25th year to the memory and legacy of our dear friend and Board colleague Don Hanson, who was killed in a tragic accident in the mountains on March 2nd , 2013. He is a great example of the kind of personal commitment that makes MEND work. We here at MEND will miss his energy, spirit and counsel.
