25 Random Facts: Sherri Raftery, M. Ed.

2003 WCPS, Jim Key with wife Past District 50 Governor, Angie Flinn Key, District 51 LGET, Ritchie Chong, LGET D31 Sherri Raftery and two other Toastmasters (I think Tammy Miller with her partner) dancing at the 2007 TM Interntional Convention in Phoenix AZ .

I am posting this from my Facebook Notes - I was tagged by several other people and decided to write my own 25 Random Facts: Sherri Raftery, M. Ed.

Once you've been tagged, you are supposed to write a note with 25 random things, facts, habits, or goals about you. At the end, choose 25 people to be tagged. You have to tag the person who tagged you. If I tagged you, it's because I want to know more about you.

(To do this, go to "notes" under tabs on your profile page, paste these instructions in the body of the note, type your 25 random things, tag 25 people (in the right hand corner of the app) then click post.)
