At the Reuben's...

I just received word that the Goodie Bag stuffing will take place on Thursday, May 23 at 2:00 pm at The Omni William Penn Hotel, 530 William Penn Place, Pittsburgh, PA 15219, Phone: 412-281-7100 in the Franklin & Greene room.

I'm looking for all North Central attendees to lend a hand. Last year our own John Hambrock was a "machine" when it came to sortin' 'n stackin' of the bags. So I'm hoping he and Anne will be there to lend a hand, once again. :-)

See you next week, Tooners!

Your beheaded leader,
ME
