TWIN CITIES DISTRICT ANNUAL MEETING
Naomi Yaeger, the Minnesota UMW Green Team representative, to speak on Green Team projects! Naomi lives in Duluth
and attends First United Methodist Church. She is a freelance photographer and writer and edits a community monthly
newspaper, “The Hillsider”. She started as a Green Team member while living in Grand Forks, N.D. and serving as co-

product is brought home.
