Thank you Jeanine! Many thanks to Jeanine Krause for serving as our President for two years. Jeanine has now passed the President’s gavel to Susan Meer. We thank Jeanine for her two years of leadership, the countless hours of her time, her discretion and great judgment in guiding our league. She led the effort to secure our Wednesday shotgun start – plus alternating the front and back nine courses. Jeanine, you did a wonderful job and our IWLN benefited greatly from your knowledge  and expertise.
