It is Spring here in the Northwest.  The days are getting longer.  The flowering trees are in bloom, along with many of the early season plants.  It is a beautiful time, in between a few rain drops.
The Annual Workshop for 2014 has come and gone.  We had a larger turnout for the two day event than 2013!  Now attention turns to the planning of the 2015 Workshop.  We will be selecting speakers and topics in the coming months.  Comments and suggestions are always welcome.  Please watch our 'EVENTS' section for updates.
