Note from the secretary- I apologize for any mistakes. Sometimes I have a hard time reading my hastily written notes and I cannot rely on my memory. If I have left off anything vitally important, please e-mail me or call. Also, I endeavor to use only first names and last name initials, but sometimes I slip up. I respect your privacy and will be trying to double check. Thank you for being such an awesome group of people.
