MARCH IS LITERACY MONTH
Happy March! We are just under two weeks away
from our Putting for Polio fundraiser and I want to
thank you for selling tickets and promoting the
event. The website is now up and fully operational
so check it out and tell your friends that they can
purchase tickets, raffle tickets or simply make a
donation at www.puttingforpolio.org.
We still need to push ticket sales and also collect
additional raffle items. Please bring any raffle
items that you secure to the meeting and give
them to Darin or Phil.
