From Dana Plocheck
Friday, June 15th, is the deadline to submit your articles, ads and/or pictures for the July issue of the Trails. Due to a conflict in my schedule this month if you could submit your information early it would be greatly appreciated. Also, I would like to remind everyone to please send pictures as an attachment. It is very hard for me to work with the pictures if they are embedded in an email. Thank you.
NOTE: If you plan on attending the Great Pepper's Meeting and have not sent in your registration or made hotel reservations, please do it now. The Great Pepper's Committee is trying to plan and need a good number for this planning.
It is Wednesday and here are the CCOs for this weekend.
