Because it takes three weeks for processing Coming to Your Senses applications and because October is already booked quite heavily, we will not be doing Coming to Your Senses screening in September or October.

Margaret Maliet's $10,000 bequest to the Club is to go toward one or more community projects. Members are to think about community project possibilities.
