Dear JGS Members & Friends,
We're just winding up for our Opening Meeting on September 23rd. This is
the time we encourage each of you to bring along a new member, & to make
sure you pay up your 2002-2003 membership ($27 for a couple; $17 for
Associate Membership -ie: for those who are also paid up JHS members). If
you are one of those who haven't yet joined, please come along & subscribe
at our first meeting of the year. This should be an exciting year for
So much was accomplished at the 2002 IAJGS Conference in Toronto; those of
us who attended have a lot of news to share. In addition, I had a wonderful
time looking through the sales kiosks, & there will be some excellent new
books on hand for you to look through for the first time.
Roz Shuler will be making arrangements for a comfortable venue for this
meeting, & you will be given all the details when they are final.
