Comments From The Chair

This month we will begin to communicate with our members a new way.  This newsletter will be the last one until January and all news on a regular basis will be via the internet.  We have a web site as part of the national Sierra Club and our individual one is easy to get to.  One simply gets on the internet with your provider and then type SIERRACLUB.ORG.  This will get you into the national page. Click on to local button, then chose Texas, then regional groups, then Coastal Bend.  You will also be able to keep up with what both the Lone Star Chapter and the national office are doing.  And, of course, you can also lok into the other regional groups in Texas and elsewhere.

The Caller-Times will publish the monthly announcements and postcards will be sent as a reminder to the regular participants. 

We also want to welcome Cheryl McGrath who has designed our web site and will be updating it as we go along.
