The PCB Calendar Raffle is a six-month-long opportunity to win cold, hard, cash. Each day, from April 1 through September 30, a winner will be determined based on the Pennsylvania evening Pick 3 number. During that period, we give away six holiday prizes of $125, special prizes of $75 on the first and fifteenth of each month, and $30 for each other day. Tickets for all 183 opportunities to win are only $20. To purchase a ticket, contact the PCB office at 877-617-7407 today or ask one of our local chapters about a ticket.

Reminder Calls Begin
PCB is piloting the use of a service to make reminder calls about our upcoming discussion calls and notification of other important action updates. Right now, all members for whom we do not have an email address have been added to this automated calling service. Since those members with email have access to reminders via the PCB-L listserv, they were not automatically added to the calling service list. If you have an email, but would like to receive reminder calls, or if you would like to be removed from the automated calling list, please contact Christina in the PCB office.

Future Leadership
This is an especially important year for PCB because we will be holding officer and board member elections at our 2019 conference. Our current President and First Vice President have reached their term limits in their respective offices. The other three officer positions of Second Vice President, Treasurer and Secretary are also up for election, but the individuals in these positions can stand for re-election to them. There will be four board positions up for election as well. Please begin to carefully consider whether you would like to run for a position or encourage those you feel would be good leaders to consider running. Please contact Tony Swartz, the Nominations Coordinator to suggest a candidate or express your own interest in running. Reach him at or by phone to 610-799-4565.

Seeking Member Audio
The Communications Team wishes to spotlight the talents of PCB’s members through the special, “Member’s Mic” section of the PCB Information Line. The team seeks audio MP3 files of members demonstrating their talents through podcasts they’ve created, poetry or prose they’ve written and read, music they’ve written and/or performed, interviews they’ve given, inspirational or educational talks they’ve conducted, etc. If you have audio for the team to consider, please email it to Ed Facemyer, Information Line Coordinator at Ed may also be able to help you capture the recording if you discuss the idea with him at 610-647-3365. And don’t forget the PCB Information Line is available 24/7 by calling 773-572-6314.

ACB Exhibit Opportunity
PCB will be reserving a vendor table in the exhibit hall at the upcoming ACB Conference and Convention in Rochester. On Sunday and Monday, Kathy Keck will fundraise for PCB with her Loving Touch Connection products. PCB seeks opportunities among its members and chapters to use the other days in the vendor hall for additional fundraising. If you have a product or collection of products that would be of interest to the more than 1,000 conference attendees, PCB may be able to offer you space at its exhibit table provided PCB would receive a percentage of the profits. If you are interested in discussing this opportunity, please contact George Holiday, Fundraising Coordinator at 215-796-9813 or In addition, we will be seeking assistance to help staff this exhibit table. Please let George know if you will be in Rochester and can volunteer a few hours for PCB.
