This and That
Please keep Linda Paluch in your thoughts and prayers. She has had an MRI and may need surgery.
We appreciate Kari Erwin for volunteering to be our Membership Chair next year. We are still looking for someone who can step up to be president and give Dianna a well-deserved sabbatical.
Is anyone interested in going to a matinee of “Menopause the Musical” playing at a Little Rock dinner theater from May 25 through July 3? We may organize a trip if there is sufficient interest.
Wishful thinking below... but I doubt this will happen either:
