Updates and follow up

  • Several weeks ago I asked if anyone would like a stack of the Wiki pass-along cards. There were several who voiced a desire to have some. Last week a small box of about 1,000 were delivered to me. I can get the cards mailed out right away. Please let Darris know how many you'd like to have. Add your request to my discussion page. Thanks. --Fran 21:46, 5 December 2011 (UTC)
