Three former Round Table Presidents, as selected by the membership and the immediate Past President will comprise the remainder of the Executive Committee for 2014. Nominations from the floor will be welcome. In closing this message just a personal note. As many of you know the past several weeks have been difficult for me as cancer was detected and removed and I am now on chemo drugs and a few other tests to be sure will be taken. I apologize for missing the November dinner as I know that I missed a top-notch presentation by Bill Young and a superb meal. I'm truly appreciative of the notes, cards, emails and phone calls from so many of you. This goes to show what a first class group we have. I thank everyone for their great support. 2014 is almost here so please join me in welcoming our new and re-enlisting officers. Brent
