I am sorry to hear that Justin and Sarah are stepping down. With 3 small children, it has to be tough to juggle things. I will say, though, that it took courage and hard work to move the club forward, and for that I am grateful. We needed fresh ideas, and they provided that. Many thanks!

Since we elect officers in January, maybe an "interim" Pres and VP could be elected to bring us through the year.
