In an effort to go green, CGS no longer has flyers and other handouts at the general meetings (with the possible exception of handouts brought by guest speakers). Instead, we are providing information for research help available here so you can print them out or copy them to your computer for reference. If you have something that would be helpful to our members, please send it, or a link to it, to Jean Hibben, webmaster, and mark “CGS hints/helps” in the subject line; I’ll make it available here as long as there are no copyright restrictions.
