                           THANK YOU 
 Our January meeting was a lovely little ceremony with Cliff Bruce installing our new officers.  Then he presented a lecture on Rough and Smooth.   Must have been his last fling before retiring from all the duties he did for the Ring.  Thank you Cliff.

Helen Patti has consented to serve as our secretary for another year.  Thank you Helen. This is a big job and doesn't get the credit that the person doing it deserves.  So all secretaries are to be thanked.

I must apologize to ACE for a mistake in the last newsletter.  I typed Ave instead of ACE!   Sorry, Mr. president!
