ENDING OF AN ERA

Roberta Gilbert -- MARCH 29, 2017

They say that all good things must come to an end.  But, just as we think we ourselves will never end, we find it hard to believe about other good things—such as the ending of a seminar in Richmond.


However, we must now announce that the Extraordinary Leadership Seminar, hosted at the Roslyn Retreat Center of the Virginia Episcopal Diocese in Richmond, is in its last year there.  After the final May 2½-day session, we’ll say goodbye and many blessings to Roslyn with fondness. We have grown to love you.
