Highlights of Recent Work in the Midwest Region

Midwest volunteers reflect on AFSC service

We’ve called them “co-clerks” for a long time, though that term doesn’t quite do them justice.

Ann Francis of Lansing, Michigan and Linda Garrison of Eldora, Iowa recently completed service as co-clerks of AFSC’s Midwest Regional Executive Committee, the volunteer body which chooses, plans and evaluates AFSC’s program work in the new 12-state region.
