To all PSSC members:

The Palm Society of Southern California has been the victim of a financial crime, which we first learned about after our meeting on September 20, 2014.

Our investigation as to the full extent of losses is continuing and we will keep members updated as details become known. We are working with law enforcement to effect the arrest and prosecution of those responsible.

We will not allow this to stop our publication of the Palm Journal or other work we do. We intend to move forward, however much the losses turn out to be.

As always, we are and remain grateful for your support.

David Bleistein, President


As you may be aware, the PSSC was the victim of a financial crime this past September. This put us "in the hole" after we sent Palm Journal No. 207 to the printers.

Through the generosity of our members, we were able to pay everyone and get back in business again. Look for Journal No. 208 to reach you in about a month and a half, more or less.
