From the President

I hope this letter finds everyone doing well and looking forward to the fall and holiday season. We want to pass on our condolences to the family and friends of Margaret Lewis a former secretary of the association. Please keep them in your prayers through this difficult time.

We have a wonderful opportunity to tour the Kaba Ilco Corporation at 400 Jeffreys Rd, Rocky Mount, NC 27804 on Friday, November 14th starting at 9:00 am. If you are interested in taking the tour it is an absolutely MUST that you preregister. You may register on line or by returning your post card. There are only 40 slots per tour. Registration is on a first come first served basis and the slots will fill up quickly. You don't want to miss out, so make sure you register to reserve your spot as soon as possible. There is no transportation provided so everyone will need to drive themselves, please carpool when possible.

Board members will want to sign up to take the early tour so they can return to Cary for the board meeting. Keep in mind that we have two board positions becoming available in November. Please check your schedule and attend the business meeting and cast your vote for your nominee choice.
