The September Edelweiss Program featured Ms. Pam Hack, Foreign Service Officer for the State Department in Amsterdam. She provided the program from Amsterdam via a live streaming link into the Heard-Craig Center. Attendees were fascinated with her stories of how the United States comes to the aid of those overseas. Thank you to Mrs. Judy Tesch for arranging the speaker.
