At the start of each two-year legislative cycle, WWC’s Advisory Council hosts a reception for members of the legislature and other funders to introduce the organization’s work and to gratefully acknowledge their guests’ support. Congratulations to Mary Allen Lindemann for being the recipient of the 2015 Merle Nelson Women Making a Difference award! This year’s event was held in Augusta, Maine at the Senator Inn on February 12, 2015.

Below is a small selection of this year’s photos. View the full album here.
