Thank you Audrey!

On Wednesday September 10, 2014, the group had a farewell dinner in honor of Audrey Fischer.  Audrey, who worked on behalf of our group on all administrative and budgeting matters, is starting a new job in the Chemistry Department. We wish her well and are happy that she will not be moving too far away!
