today we have two incredible women who have done an absolutely amazing thing in the last two months, I think it’s been. Does that sound about right? I have the folks from Sewing for Angels, today’s Rosie the Riveter Group. And if you don’t know about these folks, you need to. So pay attention. This is important. This group started February, and I have the co-founders here together, Mary Beth Kratsas and Becky Auer, and I’m going to introduce them both to you. Ladies, why don’t you tell me how it all started.
And back when I started. And probably back when you started, there weren’t courses in colleges for event management and the things of that nature. A lot of that was you fell into it, however that may be. And so I actually traced this back all the way back to my grandmother. I grew up in a very cultural home with an Italian nationality and a Slovak nationality. But I blame my Italian grandmother on this. She grew up in a very small, very tiny, close knit community.
