A MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT
(LAST UPDATED 01/28/2016)

February 2016 Web message

Gee whiz . . . . It is already February 2016.  If you stay in Arkansas for the winter, perhaps you are cleaning closets, sorting what to keep and what to toss (which is a major decision to make, when you are a Quester). Maybe you’re checking out your genealogy. I have some papers somewhere that I promise myself to get into soon.  By now, most of us have given up on our New Years resolutions. We ate our black-eyed peas, so all will be good, right? February is the perfect time to make a Questers resolution. Talk it up with your chapter members and friends and plan to visit Bentonville for your Questers State Spring Convention. It is going to be a wonderful event. The convention committee is very creative and has many terrific ideas in the works.  Our Questers International president, Ginger Robbins will be in attendance so we want her to experience what a great State organization we have.  Complete details and the registration form are found on the Spring Convention page.

Now . . . . While you are cleaning out you closets, commit to donating an item to our convention Silent Auction fundraiser. It should be an antique or vintage and a minimum of $25.00 in value. You may be tired of looking at it . . . . . while one of us will be thrilled to own it. Our bi-annual Silent Auction’s are used to generate funding for our state general fund.  Only Quester members are allowed to participate in these fundraisers. It is our Preservation and Restoration Fundraiser that may include the public.  Your chapter will decide on an item of which to sell chances to win.  This could be a gift card for a restaurant, spa, or retailer. It might be a ‘Themed Basket” or some other creative idea your chapter comes up with. As in the past, this should have a value of $75 to $100. Remember, we are trying to sell a lot of chances, and to involve our friends and neighbors in this opportunity to win.

Our newsletter ‘ The Arkansas Trav’ler’ will be posted here on our website around the third week of February. This will include more convention information, P&R fundraiser information and updates of chapter activities from around the state.

Quest on  . . .

Camille

You had to start each day with no memory, record or treasure of the past ?
Historians neglected to educate the public ?
Adults failed to interest younger generations in the past?
No one ever challenged the research of historians ?
