Spotlight on Seniors

Throughout the year we will be putting the spotlight on our senior Dragons. In this first edition of our newsletter, we thought we'd have some fun getting to know a little about what makes them tick. Our recent icebreaker survey was a fun way to kick off our series. We will be sharing more of their responses in subsequent editions.
