Winter 2001-2002 Issue


Much has happened during the past few weeks since I wrote a letter of resignation.  Yes, I am sadly resigning after 8 years ó much too long a term of office.

As I explained in my letter of resignation, we have come a long way and I believe that we have just begun to achieve what we can still achieve.  I think a new President will bring new ideas and enthusiasm.  I donít intend to leave MHVS Ė after all, this is my baby.  I raised it from birth and will always be proud to take an active part in it.  I always want to be remembered as the founder of the Mid-Hudson Vegetarian Society, Inc.

We have found a dedicated and effective member who has accepted the call to become our new President, which will be voted, and we hope agreed upon in our March 9th Annual Meeting.  She is Roberta Schiff.  Robbie has a lot of good ideas for the Society and is enthusiastic about taking this labor-intensive position.  I am elated and it seems that some of her enthusiasm is rubbing off on me.  Iím sure youíll experience it too, and that is what we need to keep moving forward in new expanded directions.

I hope that everyone will come to our Holiday Party on Dec. 29th. We have always gone to a restaurant, so this is a change. We can mingle more, get to know one another better, and have some fun.

Happy Holidays and a healthy New Year.

Peace and Love,

Rae Schlecht, President
