Branch Agent Meetings February 3, 2015

Moreland Branch Meeting 2.3.2015

Treating all people with dignity, respect and equality is the Windermere (Moreland) Way

For your Blog:

Now I know why someone can make $100K and be ‘struggling’ in SF.  No huge surprise in the Top 10 wealthiest cities, but it IS interesting to find out what salaries people need to make in each one.

Lord knows I wouldn’t want any OLD styles (aka 2014) in my new home. Here are 10 new no-nos for 2015. Just how are we to keep up????

What the heck is a ‘steampunk’ carousel?   I don’t think it has anything to do with the Ramones, but they’re thinking of putting one into the Lent’s redevelopment plan. Check it out.
