Moving Forward: A Note from Donna Avina
This is my last newsletter. I will be giving up my many volunteer jobs at our Center as of March 1, turning the newsletter creation over to Zoe Morrison, who also teaches a class once a month on preserving your old photos. I need to take some time off from volunteering to work on health issues. I have enjoyed writing and publishing your newsletter and I hope you have enjoyed what I’ve presented.
The newsletter print production team will continue to consist of Roger Corrado, Arturo Guillen, Jim Scott, and Karen Sloan. Frances Hice is the proofreader. Karen Voss, lead volunteer on the folding committee, and her dedicated volunteers fold and prepare the newsletter to be mailed.
I encourage you to read your newsletter because it is full of informative and entertaining information, and is the result of many hours of volunteer service. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of this great volunteer team. I urge you to support Zoe and the team as they make the transition from my way of doing things into Zoe’s way. I’m sure there will be changes, but that is sometimes needed to be able to move forward.
