ANOTHER TRAGIC LOSS: It is with deep sadness that we report the sudden and unexpected death of Mike Rusinko on January 10.  Mike was significantly involved in most of our fundraisers, served on the BOD and attended most monthly meetings.  He will be truly missed by our club along with the clients at the WCBA since he was Santa Claus the past few years at their annual Christmas party. We thank the members and their wives who attended the memorial service.  We extend our sympathy to his wife, Shirley, and his children Mike Jr. and Lisa along with his son-in-law and new grandson. 
WITH SYMPATHY: We extend our sympathy to Bob Mizikar on the recent loss of his sister, Ellen Pendrick.
