THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!  Last week we sent out a request for a VHS/DVD player and within a few days we received two donated units. These units have been installed and are working in the Video Lab. We greatly appreciate your support and your kind donations.

Since that went so well, we have another request.  It's for a BETA player. We've been unsuccessful in replacing our failed unit and have a serious need for one. If you've retired your old Sony BETA player and it's just collecting dust, the Video Club could really use your donation. Just send an email to  We'd love to hear from you!
