New Members Breakfast

The Thursday, 7:00 am!!! breakfast for new and "vintage" members, organized by our dedicated, hard-working Director's at Large , Gail Wilkerson (East) and Magi Malone (West), went swimmingly and seems to have been enjoyed by the new members who attended. Consisting of coffee, some curly baked goods, cake donuts, two or three types of muffins, assorted fruit slices with strawberries, and a selection of juices, this breakfast lubricated the way for some great conversation and gave us the opportunity to get to know each other a little better.

Gail and Magi told us what to expect from the Conference and the opportunities we had for getting as much out of it as we hoped. They also introduced MLA Board members and others in the organization to help us remember names and associate them with faces. A drawing was held for several small door prizes--none of which ended up in my bag of booty.

If I can do anything to assist you, our new members (or old ones) please feel free to contact me at richw@montana.edu.

Welcome to all our new and vintage members!
