Musings & ‘Did You Know?’

We stay in touch with our members and others throughout the year via email. Our board members and friends enjoy sharing short “musings” with our members and others subscribed to our emails. In 2022, we began researching topics of interest to our readers – the result is a series of ‘Did You Know?’ articles. You can find our past Musings and ‘Did You Know?’ articles below.
