I hope this is not the last letter for this year. I wonder how the banquet

Hi Anita,
First of all, I have to correct a mistake that I made yesterday. It was Ohio
and Michigan who got newsletter awards. Sorry New York, I must have been
having a "senior" moment.
Here at NSH it is the last day of workshops and everyone is looking a bit
tired. I know I am tired! Many people have gone home but there are still a
good number of folks left to attend workshops and of course, the banquet

I have been lucky to have attended several NSH S/C's, both as a tech and as
 vendor and I always thought that they looked very well planned. This year I

the scenes that it takes to put on a meeting of this caliber. The NSH staff
and the local people are to be commended for a job well done. Tonite we have
the banquet and the awards presentation. Tomorrow is the HOD meeting and
NSH 1999 in Providence becomes history.
Next year Wisconsin!
