Thank you to all who showed up for the Book Display meeting; we had a great, entertaining meeting, and it was nice the way Prez-Sharon had each of us talk about the titles we brought when we introduced ourselves, and to see the books that we’ve heard so much about..

On a somber note, Sharon also passed around a card to sign for Ken.  Our hearts and prayers go out to the Umbach family at this trying time. 

NO WED LUNCHTIME MEETING THIS MONTH ~ that day is too close to Christmas.
