It’s amazing what happens when you announce your own death (New Members Essential If Gazette Is To Continue, Winter 2017). So many people reached out to keep the Gazette from folding that for a while we didn’t know what to do.
The dust has settled. We’re thrilled. Even before the Winter issue arrived in people’s mailboxes in February, word got out and Liz Glover Wilson, Lucia Civile and Alicia Civile stepped forward. With that small group we were able to proceed with this issue. Patty Gandin soon joined us and, over the ensuing two months, no fewer than eight more volunteers contacted us. We have yet to even meet them all, but we are on the path to an exciting new future.
Two founding members of the Editorial Committee (Barbara Sides and Carol O’Biso) remain, and our new members are brimming over with enthusiasm and new ideas. In addition, others have volunteered to contribute regular articles. In this issue alone we have articles by five authors we have never heard from before.
We think you’ll be pleased, going forward, with the wide range of topics and approaches all this new energy will bring. Thank you all for your tremendous support.
