The President's Corner
The 51 '' annual MMLS Auction is history. The auction was well attended and I'd like to thank everyone who helped in any way. Special thanks to Dan Gumina, our auction chairman (we'll need a new chairman next year since Dan will be president), to Gary Slominski for the use of his truck and for bringing refreshments, and to Linda Ard and Karen St. Martin who took care of the jewelry sales tables for the first time. Thanks again to all our members who stayed and help set up and tear down. Well the last two years have flown by. This will be the last president's message ofmy term of office as your president. I want to thank all the board members, the committee chairpersons, study group leaders and all the members who made the last two years a pleasure for me. Please support Dan Gumina, your incoming president as you have supported me. See you all at the meetings and club events.
