The Last Word

Many, many thanks to Fred Kleinschmidt and the Boeing Giving Program for the Generous $1,009 they contributed to our general branch fund, that makes it possible to continue with all our educational work. Fred does so much for our branch. Wherever we have a need, Fred steps in to offer help. 

Thanks to another person who keeps on GIVING. Alison Ellison coordinates our monthly receptions. But when we went to her home in March, not only had she offered her home but also many wonderful buffet dishes including a huge trifle for dessert. Alison was helped by Barbee Tucker-Pigott, Marlene Holbrook, Sarah Atwood, Fred Kleinschmidt, Alan Waggoner, Norma Jean Kritsonis and Judy King. When Alison asks for your help in bringing food, volunteer with a smile!  Her job is a difficult one!

Finally, Susan Wilson, who chairs our Shakespeare Committee and also serves as the branch Assistant Treasurer. It is Susan who records and banks all our cash and checks. Recently, she has taken on the job balancing the Board luncheon meeting finances. If you are not attending Board meetings, be sure to cancel your lunch with Patricia Haggerty by the Friday before the meeting so that Patricia's job is easier. If we do not cancel member luncheons in a timely fashion, we are charged for the meal and, in turn, Susan will bill you for the lunch. NO EXCEPTIONS.
