Hello again Quality Pro?s,

Looks like winter is on the run, finally. Hope you all had a chance to actually enjoy the outdoors on Sunday.

This week?s April meeting should be a great one. Mansfield Madison High School ( Ramble Inn) will again be our host for the ?Food? meeting month. And Caryn Simmons will be speaking on Quality in the Food industry. Call or email Caryn with your food choice by Tuesday. Details below.

We have added a ?Section 8? to our newsletter. ( and no it?s not for our nutty members?) As a group, our Mansfield ASQ joined the Regional Mfg. Coalition a couple months ago. So we Mansfield ASQ members can now take advantage of meetings, workshops, and courses offered through the RMC ( formerly the Richland Mfg. Coalition) Take a ?scroll? down this newsletter to section 8 and see what?s available.

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.

2.) Greetings from the Chair :


Well another month has come and gone fellow Quality associates. The exciting NCAA women?s and men?s basketball tournaments have come to an end and like everybody else in Ohio the Buckeyes did not make it to the finals! Oh well, there?s always next year. It was exciting to finally see a women?s team win for the very 1st time! Hats off to the #1 Texas A&M Aggies women?s NCAA champs!

If you thought last month?s very exciting presentation from Don Thokey of Cincinnati Precision Instruments, Inc. was good just wait until this month?s presentation from our very own, Caryn Simmons, Quality Manager with General Mills in Caledonia, Ohio. Caryn has worked at several General Mills facilities including: Yoplait yogurt, Green Giant vegetables, food service cereal packaging, IQF frozen rice & pasta, frozen dough, and dry baking mix and the presentation will be very interesting as food is very near and dear to my heart, gut and thighs!

Kidding aside, this has always been one of the highlight moments of the year as there are points of interest that is always good to learn as the food industry is becoming very important to the well-being of every American!

Come join us for good food and an excellent presentation and we?ll also be finalizing our board members for the upcoming year. Please consider stepping up and contributing!


Thank you all and look forward to seeing all your smiling faces!
