With the threat of snow (which now seems less likely) and the heavy
administrative workload at PJW regarding the upcoming Joint Terrorism Task
Force hearing, we have decided to delay this month's meeting for exactly
one week. So the meeting will now be held on Monday, February *18* at 7
PM. (President's day, maybe that's appropriate, I don't know).
Please update your calendars and sorry for any problems this may cause.
