The Convention (in Hagerstown) will need 2 delegates and 2 alternates. We will select them at our March meeting. Gold and Silver Awards will also be nominated.

Janet reminded members of Bob Swainʼs "gig" at The Outer Edge on Friday, February 24th.

We adjourned for dinner at 7:05 followed by Richard Schoenbohmʼs PowerPoint program on his experiences in Romania as a member of the Peace Corps. We hope he will submit a manuscript to The TORCH magazine.
