At a recent Rotary meeting some introductions
were being made, and one concerned an individual
who was affiliated with a rather obscure trade
association. My tablemate remarked to the effect

organization these days, won't they?
That started me thinking. My thoughts went
back to a committee of the College on which I

Plans are in the final stages and you should be
receiving shortly a brochure complete with
reservation form. From all indications this
promises to be a sell-out so we urge you to send

passed surroundings. Something for everyone!
