      Hi All,

      It's Robin Everly, your current President. Nominations for BSW Secretary
      and Vice President will be discussed at the October 1 meeting. We really
      need people willing to take on these positions. If you have been on the
      fence about serving in the Botanical Society and have said to yourself
      "maybe in the future ?". Well, THAT THE FUTURE IS NOW - we need for YOU
      to get involved.

      Please talk to any officer, me, Vicki Funk or Paul Peterson on what is
      involved in serving the organization. The more people involved, the less
      work for several people who have been keeping the group going for a number
      of years by handling SI Security, bring refreshments to the monthly
      meetings, organizing outings and hikes, arranging for speakers, reserving
      a table at Elephant & Castle, setting up the room for the presentation,
      etc.--the list goes on and I'm thankful to everyone who has helped me out
      in the last 2 years.

      See ya in October
