Welcome to the inaugural issue of the NNLM MidContinental Region’s new newsletter “The MidContinental Messenger.”
After 15 years of publishing the “Plains to Peaks Post,” as our quarterly newsletter, we decided it was time to shake things up with a new name and a new design.
In the spring we sponsored a contest to choose a new name for our newsletter. We had 24 entries with great suggestions. NNLM MCR staff chose the top three finalists. We then asked members to vote for their favorite.
The winner of the contest was Renee Gorrell from Goldfarb School of Nursing at Barnes – Jewish College in St. Louis. She received a beautiful Elizabeth Blackwell “A Curious Herbal” throw blanket as a prize for having the winning entry. Congratulations to Renee and thank you to everyone who participated.
We hope you like the new look of “The MidContinental Messenger!” You can expect to continue to receive the same timely and interesting information from us.
Please feel free to contact us if you have any suggestions or if you’d like to contribute to “The MidContinental Messenger.”
