Is there interest in restarting the Daughter's of Neptune program?

We have been getting feedback that many clubs have such interest, and one club has a person who might be willing to help. That doesn't mean she can do everything by herself, but that she would work with others to revive the program. In her thinking, it is a daughter's program. If you have questions, Our President Alica Robinson will be the point person for this. She can be reached at, or at
