Date: Sat, 20 Aug 2016 19:31:41 -0700

This email is from the LatinStudy mailing list.


For reasons of health Sally has been unable to continue coordinating
her many LatinStudy groups.  In the interim many people have stepped
forward to assume leadership of those groups.  You have everyone's
gratitude:  Gratias vobis agimus!

If I've made a mistake in the updated listings, please let me know.

=========================================================================
