Aloha Voter - Annual Report

Our goals for this year were set from membership input and included the following: More clarity -- information to enable pulling of pages for filing, colored pages, numbered pages, more white paper. New format -- 2 columns, better use of front page. Usage of ongoing graphics for recognition -- not only for repeated items but to highlight and draw attention to "new" information. Encourage deadlines and have paper to members on first day of month -- try to allow for the mechanical "hang-ups". Establish ongoing columns, i.e. "Presidents thots", "Susie Orient", "Community Page". Set reports by areas -- local, state and national.

The bulletin itself determined how successful we were in meeting those goals. The cooperation of many Leaguers went into each month's product from news input to mail out and my appreciation and compliments go to the following: Dee Lum, who gave support and suggestions and who always was available when we needed reinforcement, Jane Ball, a true assistant editor, always ready to assist and always keeping her wit and humor available for "those bad moments, Mildred Walston, Betty Paige, Dorothy Murdock, Mary Jo Kent and anyone else who "jumped in" and joined an able group that took over after printing and "put"" the Voter in the mail. Ruth Snyder, the lady who was always on hand to rescue us when in distress. All the "reporters" who kept the news coming in.

These two years have been most valuable to me. As editor I have learned about League, its many areas of talent and tremendous efforts, and about "people", not only very capable people, but very cooperative people.
