April 2015 Newsletter

(We combine the newsletter and full moon mailings when they occur very close to each other - Ed.)

Thanks to the 200+ people who responded to our (accidental) mailing to update our database! We appologize for sending out such an ugly email. It was intended to be only a test message, with "extra" links, etc. for testing. Another email will be coming at some point, and we hope to get at least 1000 more responses from others <smile>.
