My name is Rachel, and I am on the board of fund raising for FABS. I am very 
sorry to say that this group has been very inactive. I have tried many times 
to get things going, but nothing has changed. I looked forward to being a 
part of this group last year, and have now become very disappointed. So much 
does need to be done, and I'm not sure how to make these things happen when 
we can not get a hold of the president of the group.
