2020 Fall Conference - Postponed

Due to COVID-19 pandemic the fall conference has been postponed until fall 2021.  A ballot will be mailed/emailed for election of officers and voting for officers will take place via mail/email.  Thank you for your input and patience.
Here are some comments from one of your webmasters:

**The latest edition of "From the Bookshelf" has been posted for our members to read or download as of June 17. The new media section is especially well done--most pleasant to look at and chock full of info.  Thanks Charlene.

**The latest Media Reviews and Notes & Newsworthy" from NPH are also posted in the "Members" section under "Reviews" and "Other Documents" respectively.  Please note above the first review of Pastor R. J. Koester's book "Elephants in the Room" it does not indicate approval. Long story short is that it actually is approved.  It will be re-posted in the near future.

**Peace Lutheran Church in Sun Prairie has agreed to host a Fall Conference.  Like many other organizations they are not quite sure what's going to be appropriate due to COVID-19.  Read on to the next item. 

**Please fill out your Questionaire from Connie as soon as possible so the Fall Conference Committe at Peace in Sun Prairie knows what all of you are thinking in regard to a gathering amid all the hoopla about the COVID-19 pandemic.  There is an online version also but you will have to copy and print it; sorry no electronic reply this time around.

**Be sure to consider becoming  CLO officer if you are nominated this summer.  The positions up for grabs are Vice President, Treasurer and Webmaster.  The duties of each office are listed in the newsletter.  


Adopt a Congregation Project

St. Peter Lutheran Church in Clovis, California has submitted a list of books they could use to get their church library started.

Members who have any of these books or similar ones to donate should send them to President Rhonda Goehl, and she will take care of shipping them. They need some volumes and would like to add some series they don't have. 

These are just suggestions and whatever you donate would be a great blessing.
