Take Note

See's chocolate is back (Yeah!) along with the wonderful opportunity to support the Women at Work Retreat Scholarship Fund. If the supply of chocoolate bars falls short in your work area, contact Stacy Shaver at (831) 459-2505 or stacys@zzyx.ucsc.edu for the nearest location. If there is not a location close to you, this may be your chance to sell some chocolate and make a lot of people very happy while supporting a great cause.
