Schober Organ Notes No. 41

OVERTURE

TO DO or NOT to DO?

There comes a time when one must "sit-back" and evaluate what one is doing. Recently, I took the time to do just that and came to the conclusion that I was spending too much (non-productive) time attempting to "produce" the second sheet and the "extra" printed page of our newsletters. Upon looking for "reasons" - I realized that 'LACK OF INCOMING MATERIAL' from the group resulted in 'LACK OF ITEMS' for our newsletters! My point: With this issue - I'M CUTTING-BACK TO A SINGLE SHEET (2 page) NEWSLETTER! This, of course, will result in additional issues of our newletter for folks (the number of issues being dependent on your "donation" and the number of pages you've been receiving). HOWEVER - If you have something (anything) you'd like to put in - or to supply as a supplement to our newsletter - send it along. If it's more than a quarter page long, please supply it in a form that can be "run-off" as copies (in other words - so I won't have to re-type it for the "copy-shop"). The standard "copy" page is 8 1/2" x 11".
