the meeting on memory sticks.

be addressed to Sandra at ssweber@wi.rr.com.

Thanks to Pauline Beck, there was a long list of

look. She adds to that list.

A questionnaire was handed out at the last meeting


listing outing suggestions. You are asked to circle
or check your favorites or add any of your own
ideas.
Another questionnaire was handed out asking for
members preferences asking for program
preferences, ideas re outings, ways to improve the

club, etc. These should be returned at the April

(pcbeck@sbcglobal.net) before then.

This year our dinner meeting will be May 14. Bring


a dish to share.
