Newsletter Matters

  • Your Contact Info:   Please keep the editor informed of any changes in your contact information.

  • Your News:   Items for inclusion in future newsletters should also be sent to the above address.

  • Notification:   Before each issue I send out an email asking for news items, but do not send a corresponding mailing to snail mail readers due to the cost and time involved. However, snail mail readers are also encouraged to send in items for the newsletter at any time.

  • This online version of the newsletter omits the obituaries and directory updates.
