A MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT

 

Hello to All,

To all that thought that I had left the country to work in the apiaries of China, you were wrong.  I have been for the short time out of commission.  I had back surgery in August and have been very slow on the bounce back.  I am still not permitted to lift more than 5 pounds and as a result am limited only to doing dishes and dusting.  Come on recovery!!
