The first time I came to the Center I didn’t know anybody but Klara. I had met her just once, but I needed to put in volunteer hours as part of my school’s requirements. I agreed to sit at the desk and greet women coming in. I was lucky that first day because Lesley was there and greeted me like an old friend. She was so cheerful and she introduced me to a few of the women who were already here “l’ll never be able to remember all of these names,” I thought. But after a time I got to know so many great women, and pretty soon I knew lots of names. Now being at the Center is the high point of my week.
