Welcome to the Ziknay NATE NATEnow

This is the first time that we are sending out a few articles by Ziknay NATE-ers (and one from the granddaughter of a Ziknay NATE-er)  This is the beginning of an attempt to send the newsletter out on line.  Our deep debt of gratitude goes to Connie Reiter for having done a personal mailing for so many years.  If you have any comments to share, please send to
The question was asked “Why have a Ziknay Nate organization?  What can one get from it?  What can one contribute to Nate and to Ziknay Nate at this time of our lives?  Ruth Gruber and Sharon Morton have written some ideas.  What are your reasons for joining Ziknay Nate?  What would you like to gain from this affiliation?
