The Post Needs Your Help!

Over the last few years, our Post has increased in membership considerably. As newsletter editor, I realize we have a lot of members who do not use or own a computer… that's ok. But, I'm asking the members who do have email to send me your address. This way the Post can put this money saved to better use. Also, by receiving your newsletter online it is in COLOR!! I would like to assure you that your email will only be used to send you information about the Post. My email address is at the top of the of this page. We all greatly appreciate your help, Thank you All!
