FOAL Annual Membership Meeting...

The Friends of the Atascadero Library will hold our Annual Membership Meeting on Thursday, July 29, at 7 PM in the Martin Polin Room of the library. The evening will feature election of officers, an exciting speaker, and, of course, refreshments.

The slate for Board officers for the 2017 – 2018 year: President - Linda Zirk; Vice President - Jeannie Malik; Recording Secretary - Carol Gobler; Corresponding Secretary - Sharon Turner; Treasurer - Shirley Summers.

Our speaker this year is FOAL Board member Jeanne Neely, a witty and interesting woman, who is presenting a discussion on "Dealing With Difficult People." After 29 years as a teacher of Psychology and Peer Communication, Jeanne recently retired from Paso Robles High School where she was beloved and well-respected. Her speech is informative and her style is warm and interactive so the evening promises to be a stimulating one.

So mark your calendars. You need to be an FOAL member to vote but you don't need to be a member to attend the meeting. --- Grenda Ernst
