A VERY HAPPY 1995 TO ALL OUR READERS! The KIT Newsletter now beginsits SEVENTH year of publishing, unbelievable as it may seem, with more than amillion words in print in 61 issues. We have reprinted these in spiral-bound annualsthat total over 1800 pages. Also we have three books in print, Roger Allain's, BetteBohlken-Zumpe's and Nadine Moonje Pleil's, with two more planned for the nextyears. We have enjoyed five Friendly Crossways summer conferences inMassachusetts, three EuroKITs in England, as well as a two-day gathering atWheathill in 1992 attended by 65 people. EuroKIT reports at least seven ad hocinformal get-togethers at various people's houses with up to 30 people attending (oneon only two weeks' notice! This does not include innumerable individual contacts withfriends, old and new. In the States, there have been the ongoing Christmas sing-alongswith Muschi and Heidi's families (now also started in the D.C. area), as well as a 1994Spring Camp-out that was attended by 42 happy campers. On top of all this, we have avery active computer Bulletin Board (The Humming Bird Express) and e-mailconnections (in the States except for the Cavanna Connection) with roughly 15 peoplechatting almost daily. Ben Cavanna also reports that the U.K. group continues withthree useful support groups.
