A warm Quality hello to you all in yet another very cold winter,

I hope the holidays were good for all of you. ( lots of family, fun, food, and football )
The January meeting is sneaking up on us very very quickly. This email and newsletter is almost a week late. But there is still time for you to consider the upcoming January 13th Dinner Meeting. It will include a great meal and a fine presentation on Automation by Innovision to be held at Hi Stat Manufacturing in Lexington. So if you want an excuse to get out and spend an evening with Quality friends enjoying fine food and an interesting presentation, give Caryn a call or email to reserve your spot. Reservation deadline will need to be Wednesday morning, January12th. Many of you may remember a dinner meeting held in the Hi-Stat conference room a year ago. The accommodations were excellent and the food waas equally excellent. Don?t miss out on this great opportunity to come out and mingle.

2.) Greetings from the Chair :

Welcome back fellow Quality associates from a long and Happy Holiday Season! I hope you all were good this past year and received everything deserving to a good Quality person.

As you can see in the newsletter there is going to be a new dinner menu for the January meeting and it seems to be very delicious! Change is always good I always say! The presentation from Innovision should be very interesting, coupled with the newly designed areas of the tour at the Hi-Stat facility. We have made numerous changes here at Hi-Stat and I look forward to sharing this very exciting tour with the group. I would like to request that if everyone has safety glasses or side shields please bring them with you as I would like to keep my fellow Quality associates eyesight in good working order! I look forward to the upcoming new year as the section has some very interesting events planned. I look forward to seeing all your bright smiling faces!
