Hi Deborah- I am greatly encouraged that you will be coming to the event! Would you have any time to help me get the word out to more people? That room adjacent to the Food Coop holds 40 people. It would be a shame not to fill it! I am coming all the way from Point Roberts. I want to come down to post a flyer in the Food Coop on the wall by the registers, haven't yet, could use help posting a flyer in more places and just to tell more people! Most people don't even look up! I communicated with the people organizing the "Skill Share Faire" to see if I could go to that to have a booth to discuss this, but they weren't the least bit intrerested, and that just seems strange to me. I think they are in denial about what is going on! I think a lot of people just don't even want to THINK about something like this! Whats your take on it? If you can help me alert more people and want to discuss this at all, please call me at 1-800-333-2553 H&W or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks! John in Point Roberts PS What branch of the service were you and your husband in? I was never in the service, but grew up in a Navy family. My dad was a SEAL.
