President’s Message

Dear Members,

I confess to getting distracted by all the sunshine of late. It’s hard to pull down the blinds and watch a webinar or attend another chapter’s program. But it’s one of the benefits of being a SinC member. So, this past month I did just that. I particularly enjoyed a session by the “poison lady”—you should try my Yew berry tea (ha). I’m also attending King County’s Civilian Police Academy and highly recommend the series. Many counties offer a version of this program covering similar topics.

Once again may I remind you to please fill out the member news form on our website to keep us up-to-date on what’s happening in your writing life—new publications, events, presentations, podcasts, updates. News received by the 20th of the month will be included in the following month’s news.

I hope all of you are finding time to write as well as time to get out and recharge after the long months of cold and rain.

Please feel free to contact any of your officers if you have questions or suggestions: Robert Herold, Vice President; Curt Colbert, Treasurer; Peggy Barnett, Secretary.

Charlotte Stuart
