Events and Ads

Dear Neighbors:

I'm changing the format today to split the events and ads from the rantings. The rantings will appear later today. Meanwhile...

Andrea Sanford ( informed me about a new Bell Atlantic program called "community threads," where Ma Bell sets aside 1% of your local phone bill for funding the Whitman-walker clinic. This program runs through Dec. 96. There is no additional charge to you as a customer, but you do need to inform Bell that you would like to participate. To register, just call 1-800-334-2355. I took Andrea's advice and it took but a minute of my time.
