Dear Colleagues,

I just had a most extraordinary week in Tennessee visiting my adopted twin grandchildren for the first time. My head is still spinning!

Our workshop with Jonathan Hall was very informative and helpful. We had a good turnout of almost 20 people so it was obviously a topic everyone was interested in.

Hopefully you are slowing down a bit for the summer and thinking of picnics Ė like the chapter picnic on July 17th at the home of Eric Hepp at 24 Lor Mar Court in Wappingers Falls. We will begin at 3:00 PM. The meat for grilling will be furnished but we each need to bring something to contribute - a salad or dessert would be great. If you have any questions please call Eric at 845-790-3381. I do hope you will take advantage of this opportunity to come and socialize with your colleagues. Itís one of the few opportunities we have to get together and just be friends.

Grace Haack and I are heading off to Morristown, New Jersey next week for the AGO Regional Convention. Such gatherings are always enjoyable (lots of concerts) and helpful (workshops and anthem reading sessions). Come to the picnic and ask us about it!

I hope you will each have time to get away and do something different this summer. Then when you return everything will seem fresh and youíll (hopefully) be ready to delve into your music again.

See you at the picnic!

Beverly Simmons, SPC
