Website Cleansing  

There were complaints in the AGM that the content of the site renews slowly. The content is, of course, the responsibility of those who wish to publish something of interest for everyone. So, please, chapter board members, do send new information as soon as it is available. Web site editor or webmaster cannot know, by themselves, when changes take place in various parts of the Section. We shall, however, initiate a website cleansing of all matter older than January 1, 2013. If there is anything you would like to keep for your records, please copy it before April 30, 2015. After that date, old stuff will be purged successively, no questions asked. Thank you for understanding and cooperation.
