Help Us to Help the Environment:  Still take a paper copy of The Petroglyph? Help our chapter go green and switch from postal delivery to email. The email version is in color, available earlier than the printed version, and reduces costs to AAS. Did you know for example, that in addition to the printing and paper costs, AAS volunteers have to drive to the printers (Tempe) to pick up the printed copies, seal and label each newsletter, bundle and place in the appropriate trays to meet postal regulations and then deliver to the Central Phoenix post office? This task involves 6 hours of labor plus driving time each month. Without this volunteer help, the Petroglyph would cost even more to produce and deliver. To convert to the electronic version, you may use the form on the website ( to sign up, or email Sylvia Lesko at with the words “email my Petroglyph” in the subject line and indicating your name and chapter.
