President’s Welcome

This past reunion in Calhoun, Georgia USA was way too much fun, and quite a learning experience. Next years reunion will be in South Carolina USA and a little different since I am the planner. The December newsletter will have more information. Speaking of the newsletter, we have a new Editor: Peggy Smith from Louisiana agreed to take over, and I am looking forward to working with her to bring the members much needed information. If you are not a member, I encourage you to become one. You can go to http://bartonsite.org/BHS%20Membership_Application_and_Publication_Order_Form.pdf to join us! Peggy will appreciate your submitting stories, newspaper clippings, pictures and obits to name just a few. You can email her at peggy.smith.phd@gmail.com.  Blessings to all, Peggy Nouri
