This is late info but I just realized that some people did not get notified when I sent out the first email and I am sorry for that.
Dixie Whitefield, wife of former CASI Director Bob Whitefield, passed away last week from a prolonged fight against cancer. They are going to have a memorial for her on Sat 5 Sep at the Community Center in Shelter Bay, near La Conner, WA.
That is all the info I have on this.
