1. Results of the Book Sale

The Annual SLSA/ASUL book sale was a great success. We sold 275 of the 350 boxes of books that had accumulated. I would like to thank everyone for their donations. But, In particular, I would like to thank all the many volunteers without whom the book sale could not have taken place. Special thanks go to Naheed Zaheer who was in charge of the sale, David Bratman who sorted the books, Sally Treadway for advertising and last, but by no means least, Rikke Greenwald who baked the cookies for the Volunteers. The Moon Bean Cafe supplied each of the volunteers with a refreshment coupon, which turned out to be particularly welcome because of the sweltering heat on the day of the sale. I hope everyone who volunteered will consider doing so again next year. In addition to the fun of selling, the books this year were more interesting than usual. So, in case you did not go, think about going next year. The bargain prices and the unusual material made this an event I would not have missed for anything. We made somewhere in the neighborhood of $4000.-, not counting the expenses. This money will be spent on a picnic which is already planned for July.
