Ginny asked for a volunteer to take care of the 2011 picnic due to Kin and her heading to Alaska for a trip.
Newsletter: BOD reviewed newsletter and edited. We’ll continue to consider alternatives to 2X a year newsletter such as postcard announcement of newsletter, or 1X per year newsletter depending on cost and funding of outside sources.
