New members since our last newsletter received membership numbers 410 through 413.

Those of us who attended LASC's Christmas party last year had the pleasure of hearing Carrie Stone perform her original tunes along with some holiday favorites. Carrie is a regular at Renfro Valley along with her friend and fellow Co-op member Susan Tomes.

Carrie is from Richmond, Kentucky and has been writing for quite some time.

Glad to have you aboard, Carrie and hope to see you again real soon!

William Rowland has attended several meetings recently and appears to be very dedicated to his writing.

Trained on piano as a boy, violin as a youth and guitar after returning from Viet Nam, William does not feel his writing truly unfolded until he began writing Christian music 15 years ago.

Welcome, William and thanks, for your offer to help with desktop publishing!
