Reuse and Recycle those VOEs
NSA Virginia needs your old VOEs (Voices of Experience). So, rake out your floor boards, check the cracks in your car seats, and send those CDs to

They will be reused as part of membership kits for new and potential members. This way, prospective members can experience the value of NSA from their very first visit, an unforgettable introduction to our organization.

Pat reports -- My membership with Toastmasters pays frequent unexpected dividends. In the December edition of Toastmaster magazine, an article by Malcolm Kushner yielded these three surprising sites for fun presentation graphics:
- Einstein writing whatever you'd like him to say on a blackboard and several others (I like the dictionary entry): http://www.hetemeel.com
- A choice of bumper stickers, soup bowls, and marquees:http://www.redkid.net/generator/
- Western era WANTED posters, Hollywood signs, plane bannes, & snow globes- extensive selection:http://www.glassgiant.com
Great images for powerpoint and emails!
