Hello again PJW supporters

I realized the most recent version of this I sent out did not have the 
location on it. Also, there are 30 groups on board, not 29 as I stated 
earlier, and KBOO is "now" a media cosponsor (I wrote "not" which the 
spell checker recognized as a word....). Please share widely!

Also, if you want posters/flyers/quarter sheets to hand out or post let us 
know. There's a limited supply at the office, but if you check in ahead of 
time I can make a batch for you.
