President's Message

Now that the summer hiatus is over, the travelers are returning home, and the children are back in school, Leaguers are again ready to plunge into implementing the League programs and events.

Not to imply that summer was completely fallow. The office was cleaned up and refurbished, the City Funds, Transportation, and the Planning and Zoning Committees met regularly to study and research, and Voter Service firmed up the time, place, program and participants for the ambitious "Running to Win" seminar.

Too, the Membership committee put the former member drive into "Go" with excellent results. The voter was circulated regularly, Viewpoints and Channel 20's "The League of Women Voters Presents" continued without interruption (though with some strain, by being short-handed) and program planning had its initial meeting.

With our "Open House" as a kick-off, we look forward to seeing more Leaguers in the office. We are in dire need for office volunteers to answer the phone, sort the mail, keep current our bulletin boards, occasional filing and other "girl Friday" chores. Each of our above mentioned committees welcome attendance by folk who may have an interest in the topics or issues or who may just be curious. City observing may be just that interesting hour or two you are longing to fill.

The addition of a real conference room to our office will, we hope, be the impetus for more committee meetings, unit meetings, or informal gatherings for discussions or even just visiting at 49 South Hotel Street.

General membership meetings will be help on a monthly basis together with special events. Here again, we can use volunteers for site locations, calling, registration, thank you's and a myriad of specific short duration jobs that make an event or meeting happen.

Included in this Voter is a list of committees, chairpersons, and telephone numbers for you to call to volunteer for any of the areas that may be of interest to you. It is often said that you get out of something what you put in, and for many this had been true. For those of you who have a few hours, a week, or a month -- won't you give it a try?

Arlene Ellis
