7. It was Jan when dues were due. No more newsletters for those who have not paid. I will keep a copy on my computer so if you pay – I will send you a late copy. Maybe we should post those who are late? How about some suggestions? At the meeting!

Sorry this is late. But I heard the world was going to end 21 May, so I held off to save myself. (Posted 24 May)
