NAME M1 Region


Regional Coordinator’s Letter

Greetings All!

Spring is here! Well—maybe mud season in some places, but I have seen flowers poking through the dirt! That, and longer daylight hours are all I need to get revived! It’s been a long, tough winter, but I made it through by working on minis. This is my year of the UFO, and I am off to a good start. Have you seen/joined the new for NAME members only, UFOers Pod on Facebook? It’s a great group to join, so much fun sharing, getting advice, and all are so encouraging of each other. Its worth the time to take a look.

Speaking of Facebook pages, I have started a new group—NAME M1 Region. The cover photo is the NAME logo and a picture of the M1 Regional Pin. This is another good group to join, as it will keep you up to date on happenings in our region.

And, did you all know we are having a fundraiser for the Pittsburgh Houseparty? We are selling car window clings. They are a four-inch oval with the same design as our Facebook page. The price is $4 each and includes postage. Order as many as you like, just send a check made payable to M1 Regional Club and mail it to Debbie Colombo at 4625 Coach Hill Drive, Greenville, SC 29615—temporary address until June 1. After June 1st, please send your check to me at 214 N. White Rock Road, Holmes, NY 12531.

The Online Houseparty is coming up in May. You can still register if you are interested. This link will give you all the information you need:

The Pittsburgh event is right after the Online Houseparty, and I hope to see many of you there supporting our region. There is an article in this newsletter about it, so check it out.

Please join me in welcoming Jackie Bartz as the new Eastern PA State Rep. She is so excited to be doing this and has some wonderful ideas! Look for her manning the NAME tables at shows, and get to know a bit about her in this newsletter.

We are looking for a few more new members for our M1 Team. We are in need of a Western PA State Rep and a webmaster. If you think you can help us out with either of these positions, please let me know. You can reach me at 845-591-5352.

I am excited about the plans in progress for the M1 Region. Perhaps not all will take place this year, but implemented no later than 2020.

As always, please feel free to contact me with any questions, comments, concerns, or ideas.
