Crosswinds said farewell to past VP of Education and key member, Chrissy Bjorklund today as she makes her move to the Fargo/Moorhead area with her husband. Current president Zach Ray presented a signature Crosswinds painting created by George Trent, signed by the entire club.

Previous Toastmaster member, friend, and senior Emerson engineer Ray Micheel came as a guest speaker with a great send-off for her! 

Good luck Chrissy and we'll miss you!
