Our warm weather is just around the corner, it’s very exciting. All clubs seem to be geared up for the coming events. Many are having a Saint Patty’s Day dance/get together with loads of merriment. NHI will be having their Gumbo Cook-Off on the 23rd. I hope all of you enjoy the remainder of March as well as Easter at its closure.
I had the opportunity to go to the AANR Midwinter Board meeting. The meeting was long in discussion about proposed changes to our national board to be smaller. AANR President, Susan Weaver, gave the book, Race for Relevance to all Trustees at the August 2012 meeting. The planning committee’s report has yet to disclose as to how a smaller Board creates greater membership. I will keep you posted as to further discussion and disclosure of this idea. A change of this magnitude requires changes in AANR’s Bylaws. Please read Lucy Heide’s Trustee report on the Trustee Report tab.
I am pleased to announce the website: http://fieldhouse.com. There are three pieces of AANR artwork that can be placed on a variety of items. Please take a look at it and order a new item for the season. (Type American Association for Nude Recreation and Florida for the search box.)

I hope all of you make plans to attend the Regional Convention at Star Ranch in McDade, Texas. The event is schedule the week of June 23-29. They have revamped their clubhouse, created a water volleyball court in their pool and have family/children activities galore scheduled. It will be a super time!!
