Be the One to Get the Proclamation
for Your Community!

Are YOU interested in obtaining the March MS Awareness Month Proclamation from your municipality?  It’s a great educational project for the whole family. It’s rewarding to be the one representing us all, to receive the proclamation from your area and to spread awareness in your community. Often we are asked to attend a council meeting to be presented the proclamation and there you can tell a little about MS and let others living with it know the MSAV is here for them. Proclamation Coordinator, Sharon Cross, will walk you through every step, making it an easy and rewarding project. Email to let us know you want to participate.
