Oops. I previously had stated that Jennifer Miedema, co-ordinator of the Emo Toy Library, was leaving that position in order to operate Rex Tolton’s Miles Bay Camp.
In fact, Miedema will be a helper at the camp for an indefinite period. She leaves here Friday to take up her new duties.
We wish her the best of luck in her new surroundings.
