If you have a presentation on file and would like to submit it, we would love to see it. It can be a pdf, Power Point, MS Word, email with pics, whatever. We will try to work with any file you send, and you can look at a draft page before publishing.
Please send to Jim Stewart. If email is a problem, bring the file on a stick and we will load it onto a laptop at the next meeting.   Thanks.
