John-  I just spoke with Tracy at the First Pioneer Farm Credit office and
found out that the meeting is to be held in Claverack, New York and not
Mass.  Claverack is about one hour south of Albany, N.Y. just off the
Northway (Interstate 87).  I would like to go and will look for another VBPA
member to go with me.  Perhaps Ed Jackson or someone on the VBPA marketing
committee.    Bill Emmons
