Thanks to Dan Weller for some design tweaks. He’s added 2 NEW items to make HOTLINE easier to read
- You can choose to read HOTLINE as a single column version. This means no scrolling up and down on a page to read one Activity report. Try it.
- The index is now HOT Linked to each Activity article. This means a single click takes you directly to the page of interest. Return to the front page by clicking INDEX in the footer at the bottom of each page

Fellow Sirs, I’ve set up a Branch 8 Facebook page. The purpose is to investigate how we can best utilize such a social media outlet. I’ve posted a few different thoughts, including a TED talk about aging and remaining fit – obviously not a choice if we have some underlying disease but perhaps an inspiration for some members.

It’s free! It’s voluntary! It’s FUN!!

The success of Branch 8 depends on volunteers and excellent leaders.
Each year at this time, our Branch Nominating Committee has the responsibility to assure that each of our leadership positions is fully staffed for the coming year. They are also looking for potential leaders for 2018 .
Please give thoughtful consideration to volunteering for one of the open positions noted in the text below. It outlines those positions for 2017, as well as potential openings for 2018.
Sir Gordon Batesole is collecting this information for the Committee.
Please contact Gordon by March 4, 2016 at: gkbatesole
Keep Branch 8 strong by letting Gordon know that you are ready to help.
