Book Exchange:

Our book exchange is back in business. So bring along a few of the books you've enjoyed over the past 2 years, and exchange them for fresh reading material. Many thanks to Dorte and Steve Hawker who operated an excellent book exchange service from their home on Minnesota St throughout the last 2 years.

Remember: Be a friend, bring a friend. And let us know if there's a member who's not doing well.
