Gazette Schedule Change
The WBA Board of Directors voted to move the scheduled printing and mailing of the Bluegrass Gazette Newsletter up by one month. The new schedule is for the fall Gazette to be delivered in October rather than September, the winter issue in January, and the spring 2014 issue will be mailed in April. The deadline for articles and advertisers in the Spring Issue of the Gazette is now March 15th. Thanks, Jim C
