As the e*Train Moves Forward - Winter 2016

Carol McGinnis.


As we move forward with this wonderful electronic treasure, we need the help of TCA members!

If you have an idea for an article, we'd like to hear from you. We'll need your text, but you don't need to be an English major, just the teller of informative stories! And we'll need good, clear photos to illustrate your story.

Here's more information. I'd love to hear from you!

Carol R. McGinnis
