THANK YOU, HOUSE OF COLEMAN
There'll always be a Broadside, but there'll never be a Broadside like the
one we produced at the House of Coleman. Rising prices have pushed the cost of
printing over our allotted budget, so we're striving for a less expensive newsletter,
and that means leaving House of Coleman.
The Broadside staff will miss the support (financial and philosophical), the
excellent working conditions, the imaginative contributions and the camaraderie we
enjoyed at the House of Coleman. Marion Coleman, especially, has given the
Broadside more than the chapter has been aware of, in tangible and intangible ways.
She has given freely of financial support, time and ideas, more than we'll ever be
able to thank her for.
And not just Marion. House of Coleman has allowed us to utilize such wonderful people as Alice Shrader, Linda Butler, Annie Leocadi, Mike Butler, Charley
Kubricht, Claire Noonan, Sheila McKinney, Ed Spade, and last, but maybe most,
Bert Clapp. Bert's the one who'd volunteer to "start the folding" when he finished
his regular work. Then, when our construction crew would arrive, we'd find the
folding finished and the stapling nearly done.
You've meant a lot to us, folks. Thanks, and much love, from the Broadside
staff and the chapter.
And while we're on the subject, the same kind of thanks and love to Debbie
Ryan, who recently resigned as construction crew foreperson.
