Hello world!

image006Welcome to Pine Winds Connections! We are really happy that you came by to visit. If this is your first time, you should know that Pine Winds Connection is a non-profit corporation that is dedicated to promoting positive, healthy connections between individuals, between groups of people, and between and within communities. Our goal is a more beautiful, united planet.

As we continue to grow, we hope to expand our presence at veteran events to include the rest of the country.
