Hi, Sue! I'll add my welcome to Cherie's. Thanks for joining the ACEs Too High Network! And thanks for providing information about your interest in ACEs, and for posting your photo.
Also, you'll see that some people have also posted their photo on the photo page, which is a great idea. (You can also do that from "My Page".) You can even add a text block with more information about your work or avocation.
And don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions about how to use this network.
Thank you for all you do for the children, families and communities in Maine. And, for working to inform and create new policies in your business sector, as well as at the state level. Sincere regards, Cherie
