Link to May 2016 newsletter

INDEX for what’s in this newsletter is further down the page.

 Newsletter is still a work in progress, so please bear with me.  This month is 3 pages shorter, but still long;.  For right now, it needs to be, since we need to continue to both THANK  and advertise our full sponsor & donor information and contact.  The 2016 donation information will end with this newsletter

For the next six months, we’ll keep the current contact information for both.  After that, it will be time to start with the new 2017 Sponsors and Donors.

Want your name and/or business mentioned here for that long?  Donate to the Silent Auction, or sponsor us in 2017.  The sooner you donate/sponsor, the longer your info is advertised.

Trying something new ~ there are two member interaction items casually mentioned in this newsletter ~ INFO ON A PRIZE, and INFO ON A WRITING PROMPT.  You’ll have to read it all (or at least, skim through it) in order to find them … Let’s see how many of you read this, and how many will participate?

We’re a group of writers and publishers!  Let’s WRITE!  Send your answers, and PROMPT article ASAP to me:
