It was wonderful to see so many of you last month for our birthday celebration. This month we have another fine program. Dues collection has gone well, but if you have received a reminder notice, please do send in your dues to our treasurer, Sandy Watkins. If you have new members to propose, applications are available at meetings and are also on our website; Estelle Hausman is our membership chair and Gloria Yim is in charge of auditions. Many thanks to Yulee Seo and all those contributing to hospitality this month and throughout the year.

Updating you on our activities in support of music for young people: The Homem Committee will be soliciting applications for its community grants soon. Watch for a separate announcement, coming soon. Thank you to Deborah Long for chairing this committee. Also, mark your calendars for the Silver Tea, April 24, always one of the year's most worthy and fun events bring a guest or just enjoy your fellow members! This event is our only fund raiser for the always-inspiring Young Artist Competition.

With warm wishes,
Katy Wilson
