Here’s a big favor I have to ask of you.
If you have a chance, try contacting a local newspaper in your area, trying to identify an editor or writer whom you feel may be interested in writing about us, and let them know about our recent Press Release, announcing the community:
(the press release actually talks about a member number that is now obsolete, since we now have well over 800 members).
An example of how possible it is for us to get mentioned on local news is an article that appeared on the Tuscaloosa News today (Sept. 6):

So, we can make a difference: I count on that phone call, fax or e-mail to your local journalists.
Thanks to everyone!!!
