Dear Members and Friends,
Thanksgiving reminds us that we have much for which to be thankful,
and that we need to take the time to express that thanks and appreciation to those who have touched our lives in so many ways.
Here at PALCUS, we recognize that we would not exist without the support of our members and the
community at large. And so, we would like to thank you.
Thank you to our members at every level for joining us.

Facebook, Twitter, YouTube or LinkedIn.
Thank you to everyone who listened to our podcasts
