Taking a break to get my knee fixed. See you all soon. Regards, Doug Ellsworth, President


Membership

As I will be stepping away from my six-year stint as Membership Chairman over the weeks ahead, I am pleased to announced that Dan Edwards have stepped up and volunteered to be my replacement. We decided that the transition would be done incrementally and, to date, Dan has accepted responsibility for the membership database (he is an Excel wizard), monthly reporting, badges and inductions. Please join us at the April meeting to witness “the new guy” in action!
