Editors should send the Newsletter directly to me— wgaupperle@comcast.net. Include your Region or the Newsletter name in the file name attached to your email. Please contact me if you have any questions.

Email is always best; it saves money (if necessary, get a grand kid to help). But if that’s not possible, mail a hard copy to the MARC home office: 6721 Merriman, Garden City, MI, 48135. These will be forwarded to me.

Director of Regions, Bill Aupperle
