Progress reported on April's upcoming State Conference, although Barry is concerned over the relatively few paper submittals received, possibly from the delay of the State Association in distributing the 'First Call for Papers!" Submit your proposals to Barry!
Steph will be setting-up some laboratory sessions to process Florist Site artifacts. She'll sent out an email to the membership with the details.

We are planning on attending the Ice Harvest February 19th on the lake at Arrow Park in Monroe NY.

Bring your displays of interesting stuff! More details to follow.
