On Tuesday, April 21st, over 60 WIE Staff, Board members, Advisors, Champions, members and their guests celebrated, networked and shopped at the Cotswold MarketPlace Design Center.  If was also a chance for us to introduce to the WIE community Charlotte's 42nd Postmaster, Le Gretta-Ross Rollins.  Le Gretta is responsible for approximately 1,143 employees and 24 retail stations and carrier units across our community.

We were entertained by saxophonist, Will Lee, who provided music for the occasion.  More about Will Lee HERE!

WIE would like to express its appreciation to Melissa Vandiver and the staff at the Cotswold MarketPlace for providing the atmosphere and refreshments for this wonderful event. You can find more about the Cotswold MarketPlace on their FaceBook page.
