. We recently welcomed Wendy Taylor, we should have welcomed Wanda Taylor,
sorry about that Wanda.
Wanda sends this bio -

I started with Air Canada in 1974 as a Flight Attendant in YWG. In
1985 I was offered a special assignment in Management at YWG base.
I enjoyed it so much I then accepted a permanent position in 1989 at
YWG base as a Route Operations Supervisor. I remained in that position
until I accepted a package in 1993. With the years I completed at
Air Canada I have made good friends across the country in various
departments and would like the opportunity of keeping in touch with
everyone. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
Thanks Contact: Wanda Taylor  E mail: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

. Silvie Atterbury of Toronto sends us this reminder -
Subject: Art Show
The Toronto ACRA art show has been set for April 28-30, we have to set
this late due to trying to get space at airport to hold same. If we
have to move dates up a few weeks then I will call all artists.
All are welcome, they must be ACRA members, if not they can join easily
enough.
All art work must have been done in last year, categories are
oils/acrylics, watercolors, drawings, sculptures and
prints....up to five entries in each category. Work must be framed
ready for hanging and not be larger than 3' by 3' or weigh more than
50lbs. I will fax entry forms to you if anyone is interested.
The February horizons had complete list of contacts in all areas
and anyone outside Toronto will have to contact their area
chairperson direct.  Silvie Atterbury This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

. Smilie.
Sent to us by Gord Daziel -

Air  Meal  Shortage
A nervous air hostess on board a flight announced: "I don't know how this
happened, but we have 100 passengers on board and only 40 dinners."
When the passengers' mutterings had died down, she continued:
"Anyone who is kind enough to give up his meal so someone else can eat,
will receive free drinks throughout the flight."
Her next announcement came an hour later: "If anyone wants to change his
mind, we still have 29 dinners available!"
