Letter from the President
Hello sisters! I hope you have all had a wonderful summer. Carole Luzio and I just returned from convention, and we had an amazing time! Lots of beautiful music, things to learn, and great company.
I am writing to remind you of the board meeting at Carole Luzio's house (look in your yearbook for address and directions) at 11:30 AM onSaturday, August 18.
I am looking forward to seeing you all there! If I forgot anyone, please forward this along!
Love in SAI,

Hi my sisters, just a brief report for you. First of all, our sister Carolyn Pritchett & her husband Ed are moving north and we will miss them. Carolyn's health has not been good & they think it best to be closer to their children. We, and especially sister/in-law Mary Webb, will miss them.
Secondly, The board will meet in August (2nd week, I think) at Carole Luzio's and we will install Stephanie Daige as president at that time. As you recall, Stephanie was our province president and could not make our regular instalation. And I will be in Poitiers (! -yea!) at the time of our 1st regular meeting in Sept, so we thought it best that Stephanie step in ASAP.
I appointed Carole Luzio as VP-programming to act as our delegate to Convention on Aug. 2 & she and Stephanie are
traveling to Atlanta together.
One other item -- guess I'm doing directory for the year. If you have any changes, please send them to me ASAP. Mary Webb will help me with it, but we have to do most of it next month as I'm leaving the beginning of Sept until the 21st. (going to climb Montsegur! -- wait til you see my purple walking sticks & purple-plaid rucksack!!!!!)
Also.,our sister Vivien Eckert has been recuperating from a fall -- & I will ask Mary W to get further information to you. I took roses to her from all of us. Here's hoping she's out soon. Our love to you, Viv.
Am working on treadmill every day these past two weeks- hit a 7.5 incline today. Maybe I'll make it up Montsegur on the Pyrenees!
Lots of love to all of you.
Carole Cornman will do nominating, but we are still looking for a Publicity person. **She also listed the directions for the hosts homes, however I don't post these on the website. This is a public website and the addresses are all listed in the yearbook.
