    Hi Libby, I just saw the posting for an Executive Director. Curious minds want to know, what does that mean? Are you leaving the day-to-day or is this in addition to you? Big move either way. Just had to check in to see what the scoop is. See you at the dinner in a couple of weeks. Looking forward to your fantastic food and to seeing you. Have a great week. Sue Bevins
