This last weekend at the NW Regional Convention in Spokane, the shipmates voted to modify the Regional Bylaws section SR-4(f) that concerned the funding for the annual Americanism/Patriotism prizes at the regional level.
The bylaws have been modified and are available for download from the Regional CB&L page located at: http://fra-nwregion.org/?p=29.
There are three versions available for download: 1) a cut and paste version of the new sections to put over your existing copy, 2) a full page version of the Bylaws in 8.5 x 11 page format, and 3.) a half page sized version of the Bylaws in 5.5 x 8.5 page format.
If any shipmate has questions on the downloads, please feel free to contact PRPNW Lazzaretti, NWR CB&L chair with your questions
