David Lennox, 1940 - 2011

We have just learned from long-time HLCCA member Vaughan Vander Meer of Phoenix, AZ that his partner, David Lennox, passed away on December 14th after a brief illness.  David was originally from Toledo, OH and was a distinguished military veteran.  Vaughan and David have been HLCCA members since 1998 and have attended many annual conferences, most recently our 2011 conference in Pittsburgh, PA this past summer.  We offer our condolences to Vaughan and the members of David's family.

Happy Hanukkah!



It's the first night of
the Festival of Lights!

Maryann Cannon informs us that Becky Turner's family has selected a flowering dogwood tree (Cornus florida) to be planted in her honor at the Huntsville (AL) Botanical Gardens.  We want to acknowledge Maryann for coordinating this fitting memorial, as well as the many HLCCA members who contributed to the purchase of the tree.
