    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.



    March 2000

    Our auction at the Aukerman’s raised $1,100. Thanks to Lee and Claire and to all whom participated and made contributions. This was our best auction in several years.

     Our immediate need has shifted from money to volunteers. Due to the pressure of work and other obligations, Sharon has resigned as Treasurer and Lorna is no longer able to do all of the work for programs. She needs help on the Program Committee. Please volunteer for Treasurer or to help Lorna with programs.

     My goal is to have the membership confirm a new Treasurer at the General Meeting on March 25th.

     From SBUF President, Les Berg
