    It's newsletter time again

    Hope everyone has had a great couple weeks since our last edition. As winter comes to a close, and we can start looking forward to spring and summer, we've got a lot of exciting things happening in the next couple months that we're looking forward to sharing with you. Thank you to everyone who sent feedback on last month's edition of the newsletter. I've tried to incorporate it all into this issue. As always, if you have any questions, suggestions or concerns, please feel free to contact me by e-mail or by phone.

    Helping one of our own
    Brother Jon Dinter, GK 1392, and his wife Jayme recently became the parents of two twin boys who were born prematurely in December. Two of Jon's colleagues at Battle High School in Columbia have set up a Go Fund Me page to help cover some of their medical expenses. Details and a link to the Go Fund Me page are available in this Columbia Daily Tribune story.
