WE STILL NEED YOUR HELP! Our Speaker's Committee (Evelyn) has been pre-occupied with some issues helping her son's new business get off the ground. Do YOU know of some interesting speakers? Would you be a good speaker on a topic of interest? Let me know of your ideas and possible contacts who would be interested in speaking to us!


Please note- New Procedure to show your interest! As we have so much going on, on top of the fact that spring is generally such busy time of year anyway, you will note that there are numerous items attached to this newsletter. Please review each for specific details of different available activities and at lunch we will pass around "sign up sheets" on which you can reserve your spot where participation is limited as in the case of Gala's etc. or you can simply show that you are interested in participating in a particular activity where it is not limited.

You can't say you didn't know anymore!
