Our publication the Flier is just about finished and should be going to
the presses within a week. So we can expect things to really begin to
take off at that point.

Since the NFC is a grassroots organization we need you the
members/lurkers to get the word out. I ask that each of you email the
attached application to at least 10 people/ email lists this week. Please
do this it makes a tremendous difference !

Also we are collecting items for auction via our website to raise funds
for NFC activities. Suitable items would be almost new of value. Check
with myself or Dwight Moody if you or your bussiness has an item. All
donations are tax deductable

Finally we are working on a deal with some Authors to get signed copies
of their books on the website auction block. They in turn would get an
advertisment on the web for a full year for their book. Details to
follow. If you know of any books youd like to see on the website auction
block let us know !

Thanks again
