I want to offer a belated "Thanks!" to everyone who passed 
on their experiences with emeritus and alumni volunteer 
tutors - and, in particular, thank Frank Christ for the 
call.

My apologies for being so late in voicing my appreciation 
- where did the last three weeks go?

We are undertaking a comprehensive outreach program aimed 
at recruiting volunteer tutors - will let you know how it 
goes!

Pleased to have found this group!

-Chris
