General News · 1st November 2018
The Board of the Cortes Island Seniors would like to thank Patricia, who for almost 7 years has created our monthly newsletter! Anyone who has tried producing even one newsletter will know how much work and imagination that takes. So, multiply that by 80!
Patricia, your newsletters have been consistently fun, creative, and informative, and we send you our deepest thanks for all those years of work! We will miss the "voice", that is so particularly yours.

From Gina:

I am honoured to create the newsletters for CISS. But, please be patient with me, while I am learning all the events or information of interest to you, and forgive me, if I miss something important. It will be hard to fill Patricia’s shoes with her sharp humour and an eye for interesting stuff.
