Happy New Year to all! I have loaded this new "site updates" page for 2019 and archived the 2018 updates to the "Site Map" page. Today marks the beginning of my 14th year maintaining our website... and I am into my 20th year as Association Historian...elected to my position at the 1999 Association Reunion in Kansas City. It has been a life-changing experience! Thank you all for allowing me to serve!
