Is it Spring, yet?

Well a warm Quality hello to you all anyway, in yet another very cold winter,

I again apologize for the late newsletter. This month?s meeting is next Thursday and it is another plant tour. ( yeah!!! ) And since there is no meal associated with it, it is FREE!!!! There?s no such thing as a free lunch(or dinner). But we can offer you a free tour ( and .3 FREE r.u.?s to go with it ) Jeff Massoni and Rable Machine have graciously agreed to provide our group with a tour of their manufacturing facility. Call or email Caryn for reservations (see section 1 below )

Also included in this newsletter is a Quality Manager job posting, somewhere in Ohio. If interested, see section 7 below.

If you are changing email addresses or know of one of our members who has recently changed email addresses, please let me know so I can update our email directory. Thank you.

Stay warm.

2.) Greetings from the Chair :

Hello again fellow Quality Associates. Hopefully everyone is doing fine so far this new year. It?s amazing how fast this 1st month has just slipped away!

Everyone be VERY careful out there when traveling to and from your destinations!

This month?s tour should be another exciting time at yet another facility here in the area.

Be sure to contact Caryn Simmons if you?re planning to attend the tour at the Rable Machine facility so we have a head count. Jeff Massoni confirmed our plant tour for Feb. 10th, 2011 @ 6 p.m.

Here are the directions to Rable Machine:

They are at 30 Paragon Parkway. Take Rt. 13 North and turn left by Hales Harley Davidson. Take the second left (<2 tenths of a mile) onto Paragon. Rable is the first drive on the right.

I look forward to seeing everyone there as this will be an excellent tour!

NOTE: Minitab has cancelled for the March meeting so I?m looking to fill that month?s presentation. So if anyone has any suggestions please feel free to contact me or we can discuss @ the tour.

May God Bless,
