Hello, fellow Federationists,

May is gardening time at our house, so we are outdoors quite a bit. I hope
you will picnic, hike, or get to enjoy our Spring climate!

We are preparing for convention season, making air and hotel reservations
and all the household arrangements needed to be away for over a week. I am
told that the NFB convention hotel is already referring new reservations to
our Rosen Center overflow hotel. If you have not already made your national
convention plans, do so immediately!
