Mary is especially reminding you about the RGSC upcoming meeting or AGM for January the 20th. She is also trying to encourage your attendance to be sure that those of us whom are and have been localy located and associated with the club can contribute to its continuity. We share a concern that with a decline in local members there will be a problem in continuity. Your attendance will dictate our future.

Rumor has it that at the Awards night banquet, the greater majority of the Executive choose not to run for re-election.
However, Tracy Haines will remain as Past President and Sherry Black is willing to continue as secretary. Both Tracy and Sherry have voiced that they are committed to help a new executive form the nucleus of the 2013 club.
Doug Newman, long time Treasurer/Membership chairman has asked to step down, but leaves it clear that he will help and interact with any new chairman to learn and understand those responsibilities, plus use any of his forms and books.
I, Mary Dancey Clark, have offered to again be the Newsletter Editor.
