One of our fabulous lifetime members, Pat Murray began this deal for us with a bulk purchase of 10 copies and we sold those out within a month.  We liked this idea so much that we decided to do it again and handle it through our Education Committee.  We have received our 1st shipment of books and they went fast. We have just ordered (Sept. 2018) a new shipment and there now ready to distribute to members and non-members.  All proceeds will go into our Education fund that provides scholarships to deserving members for our hands-on classes and online courses.
