What Brian said.

A founder.

It's possible we would not even have this club if not for the efforts of Joan Lawrence Voltmer and the like.

A bio of her efforts and history are to be posted soon, as for details on her celebration of life.
In an effort to not miss any details, or get anything wrong, i look forward to the post and and information being supplied by the family.
