With spring just three short weeks away, I'd like to be the first one to officially welcome in the new spring! Given the magnitude of winter this year, I know we'll all be happy to see the cold weather gone for a while.

I'd like to remind everyone that we have eight Legion of Honor recipients that were to be honored at the 28th luncheon for their 50 years of membership in SPE. We will now recognize these men at our luncheon on Thursday, April 1st.

SPE student night is scheduled for Thursday, March 25th this year on TU's campus. This year's speaker will be Charlie Perry. His presentation on global warming should be very interesting. Those wishing to attend should sign up early as seating availability to the general membership will be curtailed in order to accommodate the student body.

Here's hoping we can survive another three weeks of winter.
