Linda Debner
I want to wish all of you a very Happy New Year! I'm looking forward to seeing you at our first membership meeting of the year, January 25, 2018.  We will be learning more about aromatherapy at this meeting and some great topics lined up for months to follow.  We also have some meetings without speakers selected and would like to hear from you about what topics you would enjoy learning about.  You can let us know about these topics on your "speaker evaluation" at the January meeting.
The Members at Large have planned the Spring Luncheon and Annual Meeting and only have the menu left to select.  This group has been working hard to make this meeting among the best.  This is also the meeting we vote in the new board members. If you would like to serve on the MASWA board, please let a current board member know you would like to participate as a board member.  There are several openings on the board coming up.  They will be posted as soon as we know who would like to continue serving on the board.  Remember to save the date for the Spring Luncheon and Annual meeting.
The Fall Aging Conference Steering Committee is set to have their first planning meeting at the end of January.  Georgene Connelly is the Co-Chair from MASWA this year.  Georgene is a dynamic leader and is eager to start the planning process.  They are always looking for committee members and if you would like to work on the Fall Aging Conference please let Georgene know.
The only advice I have to give in January is "THINK SPRING"!  See you soon!
