Dear Members,
        Hope you had a safe and enjoyable summer!
        Jeri and Judy want to start off by thanking Carol Greeno and her Salem Unit for their outstanding work in helping to make the 2016 convention a success!
        This summer we have been working on the 2017 convention to be held at Chinook Winds in Lincoln City May 7-8-9.  Please plan on attending.  There will be interesting speakers, a fun field trip, glassblowing if desired and, of course, the beach and casino.
         There will be more about the convention on the website as plans are finalized.  Stay tuned!
         We just returned from a Leadership Training Conference in Chicago and enjoyed meeting retired educators from other states.  Membership seems to be the biggest issue facing every state.
         Our best wishes are extended to you for a wonderfully successful year with your units!
