From the Editor’s desk:

“They say that all good things must end some day Autumn leaves must fall.” (“Summer Song” by Chad and Jeremy)
Summer is fleeting by and soon the autumn leaves will be covering the ground. Enjoy the rest of the summer!

Speaking of vacations, Eric Nilsson and his wife, Sandy, went to Hawaii and Eric was kind enough to share with us their “Hawaiian Vacation of a Life-time” (pages 9-11). Eric has provided us a very insightful description of the cultural, musical, historical, and gastronomical environment of Hawaii. His website links are very informative and entertaining. I particularly enjoyed the link to the Beach Boys’ Surfing USA website because it brings back memories of my own enjoyable vacation in Hawaii.

NETWORKING – What is it all about and how does one do it? From dictionary.com – “Networking is a supportive system of sharing information and services among individuals and groups having a common interest.” To shed more light and different insights on the nature of networking, we are presenting you two very interesting topics:
  • Jerry Clifford’s “Networking Is Not Just Talk” (page 1) gives us some basic “dos and don’ts” of networking.
  • Tish Edwards in her article, “What Smart Volunteers Know – The Volunteer’s Advantage” (page 3) promulgates her strategy on how to network in a genuine and cost effective manner —BY VOLUNTEERING!
