Dear fellow EWI of Spokane Members,
Hooray, hooray it’s the month of May! I absolutely love this time of year! I’ve especially enjoyed the past four weeks of unusually sunny, warm weather that created an explosion of beautiful, vibrant hues of spring! Another school year is coming to a close and our annual scholarship banquet is upon us. On Tuesday, May 17, EWI Spokane will honor three area high school students for their academic excellence and the impact they’ve made within their school and our community and two nontraditional students committed to obtaining a college degree.

Dear fellow EWI of Spokane Members,
In the past week the majority of our members have received email communication from a few concerned EWI members. (The Corporate Board sent a letter of response to Chapter President’s and Vice Presidents on 4/11/16 and were given permission to share it with our members - you can find it in our members only section under reports). I advise you to remember that there are always two sides to every story and to note that we only received bits and pieces of information. EWI Corporate is currently operating without an Executive Director and a couple of...
