A "Thank You" from Norma Morrison

After 8 years of faithful and passionate ministry to the Iowa Annual Conference, Norma Morrison has retired as Conference Lay Leader.  Norma writes, "In the past 8 years I have traveled over 110,000 miles, over 54,000 by car and almost 56,000 by air. I have attended more meetings and written and received more emails than I care to count but through these contacts I have made life-long friends, not only in Iowa, but all over the world."
