1/1/2002 - ALUMNI NEWSLETTER
From the LWMA Alumni Association, we hope your holidays were a joyful time and many wishes for the New Year to you.
We have enjoyed the past few months in the new Alumni/Museum Center built by the alumni. This building has been a dream come true and it is your building. There are many items needed for it such as a better way to display items, but that will come in the future. We are always looking for items to be placed in the museum so look around and see what you have.
Don't forget that our annual meeting and social will be on May 4,2002. At that time, we will also have a dedication of our new building. Put this on your calendar now.
Be sure to send us your news and don't forget your dues if they have not been paid for 2002.
