Dear Members,

VOTE, VOTE, VOTE.  It is important enough that you vote that this could be the full extent of my comments this month. The ballot is on this website so no excuses!  Results will be announced at the April meeting.

The other item in need of your attention is the sign up for the March luncheon meeting at the Monarch Hotel which is March 20.  This will be another interesting meeting.  Several members are going to present some of their best "Tips or Tricks" they found useful in the repair or restoration of clocks or watches.  Topics include "how to", "where can I get a replacement part or who can repair it", "what is the best method of restoration" etc.  Several members and a guest speaker will make the presentations.  You will want to take notes at this special meeting.

Your Chapter is supporting the Pacific NW Regional with a $100 donation into their general fund as approved by your Council.  The Regional is in May and therefore there will be no May meeting for Chapter 31.

Rod Lloyd continues to do an excellent job of mentoring the group of students who attend the clock repair class in West Linn.  I make occasional appearances to offer my own experience to the newbies in the class.  This last week, your chapter treated the class to Starbucks finest decaf coffee in light of my bending their ear about the chapter on a one-on-one basis.  Next time I plan to take 5 minutes from class time to explain the Chapter.  A constant feature of my visits has been to distribute past bulletins in the hopes of generating interest in the Chapter.

Respectfully, George Matto, President
