In an ad on page 34 of the printed Winter News for the March 30, 2019, event in the Philly-Princeton area to celebrate Dilip Soni, Mr. Soni's first name was spelled incorrectly. We regret this error. Here is the page with the correction made. 

The ad for the Scissortail Traditional Dance Society's event Set for Spring, which takes place March 15 - 17 in Okahoma City, was inadvertently left out of the Winter issue of the News. Please see the ad here
