Election of Directors

        The Board of Directors proposes that the following nominees for Director, all of whom are currently serving and whose term expires at the 2008 annual meeting, be re-elected for a new term of one year and until their successors are duly elected and qualified.

        Shares represented by the proxy will be voted and the proxies will vote for the election of all the nominees to the Board of Directors, except to the extent that authority to vote for particular nominees has been withheld. If any person is unable or unwilling to serve as a nominee for the office of Director at the date of the Annual Meeting, or any adjournment thereof, the proxies will vote for such substitute nominee as shall be designated by the proxies. Management has no reason to believe that any of the nominees will be unable to serve if elected a Director.
