NOTES FROM THE CHAIR

Dear Volunteers and Friends,

So which is it?  Is 2010 the beginning of a new decade or 2011? I'm still troubled by the chicken and the egg issue.  In any case, Happy New Year!

Last quarter was fun.  We had a good turnout at the Marie Callender's dinner party in November.  I learned that another Literacy Council student, Elizabeth Baines, passed the GED test.  And I received enough coal in my Christmas stocking to barbecue a meatball.

Although we haven't done much to promote our services, we are still getting applications from new students and volunteers.  Easter Seals, Living Opportunities, and Head Start have all been asking for student applications.  If our placement officer, Liz Koester, hasn't already called you, and you want to take on a new student, leave a message at the office.  Remember, this month you have to dial the area code while the phone company is making room for more numbers.

Thanks to Nancy Calcagno, we have a new format for our newsletter.  I think it looks great, but she could use a few words from our volunteers to fill the pages.  TUTORS is "of," "by," and "for" the tutors, so send in your comments.

Bob Burger, Chair
