Dear Colleagues, Friends and Family:

As many of you are aware, Chet Stachecki (Program Administrator) and Richard Newmann (Program Manager) of the Delaware Mosquito Control Section will be retiring in January, 2000. It is truly the end of an era with the departure of these two great gentlemen (together they have a total combined experience of 67+ years).
