ABOUT PROGRAMS: Is there a topic that you would like to see offered for discussion? Is there a speaker that you would like to see invited back? Do you have a special interest that you would like to share? Lorna McClellan has been doing a really great job coming up with the variety of programs that we have enjoyed in the last two years, but we all could help her by giving her our ideas and feedback. (Perhaps we could also let her know her effort is very much appreciated.) Thank you, Lorna, from the newsletter editor who depends on you 95%. If you have an idea, call Lorna.
