Changes to the Newsletter Team

October 16, 2010
For 6 years, 125 newsletters, 1500 member articles, and 500 news stories, there's been a great volunteer who has helped to bring the BookCrossing news to you. But now she's czuking in her editor's pen, reporter's cap, and printer's press and stepping down from the Newsletter Team. BookCrossing would like to extend a fond farewell and huge thank you to a volunteer who's been a Newsletter Team mainstay. Back in 2004, bookczuk started out as Ron's assistant on the Newsletter, but soon moved into heading the team of volunteers who created our semi-regular publication. She's been a vital part of the team, sometimes reporting, copy-editing, fact-checking, even encouraging members to submit their stories for publishing consideration. She'll still be around to help with projects, but now our czukie is editing herself off the team so she can spend more time with the joys in her life: her family, music, writing and artwork, of course, reading and releasing via BookCrossing. Laura111, a staffer in the Sandpoint office, will be picking up the pen and managing the Newsletter team, crossing the t's, adding the html to get all the news out to you. Thank you, bookczuk and welcome Laura111!
