Greetings to all. Whether you are a long-time member of PE or this is your first newsletter, I welcome you to this project, and look forward to your participation, as well as your feedback on how we can improve on what we are doing. Our primary goal is to provide a public forum of opportunities for self-improvement and creative expression through the programs we facilitate. In each semi-annual newsletter, we include a listing of projects offered in the upcoming program cycle. Some projects are ongoing, while others are one-time events; and occasionally, projects reemerge after hibernating awhile. Such projects are usually revived by the energy new volunteers bring to PE, or because you, the recipients, inform us about how useful or meaningful it had been.
