President's Message

Dear Friends,

Our final General Meeting for this fiscal year was held on May 17, and we all truly enjoyed Hee-Jin Choi's Scrapbooking Seminar. Thanks to Phil Binderman, our outgoing Program Chair, for organizing such a unique program.

Upcoming Programs

Exciting events are already scheduled for fall. Incoming Program Chair Sue Strickland has arranged forMozart Chamber Concerts to be heard on Saturday afternoons in September, October, and November. Also in October, Ellen Pangarliotas from the League of Women Voters will be presenting a review of the November ballot measures. Be sure to mark the dates on your calendar now.

Board Elections

The May meeting also focused on the presentation and election of officers for the 2006-2007 fiscal year. A rundown on the complete slate of officers appears on page 8. I certainly add my congratulations to each newly elected Board member.

Now, Time to Pass the Torch

This farewell letter to you is bittersweet. I've had the pleasure and honor of serving you for two terms. Now I must vacate this most rewarding position.  However, I am leaving you in good hands. My successor, Sharon Schuster, is more thanworthy of this office, having organized and presided over our first Friends Board.

Many accomplishments occurred during this administration. All required a great deal of team effort, so I want to take this opportunity to thank my dedicated Board.

My deepest gratitude and appreciation for the untold hours and contributions of my Board and the volunteers of the Friends of Platt Library.

Frona DeCovnick, President
