Dear TFLA Members,

I am excited to announce the scavenger hunt for the spring 2014 newsletter to receive one year of free membership. All you have to do is read this issue of the TFLA newsletter and answer the following questions. Please note that although all answers can be found in the newsletter, they may not appear in order. This scavenger hunt will be open until close of business on Friday, February 7. No email entries will be honored after 5:00pm on this date. You may send me your answers via this email address or you may send to: vpresident at tfla.info.

At that time, entries with all ten correct answers will be entered into a drawing from which three members will be selected to receive free TFLA membership for one year. Here is a link to the newsletter: http://www.tfla.info/publications/.

Many thanks to Journal Editor, David Timms, who always does such an excellent job with this publication! Thank you all for your membership and happy hunting while learning about the great LOTE happenings in Texas!
