From the President:

In our December meeting we will elect new officers for your Club Board of Directors. Steve Huskins will step up to the Office of President. We will need volunteers or nominations for the office of First Vice President. The offices of Secretary and Treasurer also will need to be filled. For the Treasurer it is important to have access to a computer as the historic data and forms are stored in electronic media.
We are calling on the membership for nominations, or volunteers to fill the offices, critical to keeping the Club running.
Thank you for your support. Jim Stalker
