A NOTE FROM THE EDITOR
Dear NWSMTA members,

If you have information about events, recommendations for books or online resources, or even an idea you would like to share, email it to me. I will send it out in a memo or add it to other news that cannot wait for fall.

If you're ready to step up and volunteer to join or chair a committee, your time has come. You will be given a hand to hold and friends to share the fun. Just let Brenda Buchanan know what you would like to get involved in.
