Sheila, I set you up with a Profile and Banner on the Website. You can see it here Sheila G. Bennett. Anytime that you post to the Discussion Board your signature (as it appears in the summary) will be automatically placed in your posts. If you are unable to put events on the GRA Discussion Board Calendar, let me know and I will set you up with permissions to do so. Our (Kelly and I's) GRA Discussion Board should give you the lattitude to promote SOS through the GRA on an on going, Do-it-Yourself basis. You are more than welcome to call me (404-545-5456) and I will give you a quick lesson on how to use the Board.

Also, when I was talking about putting up a creative on our web, I was speaking about my website This gives me an idea, maybe I should create a "Community Service" page on our web. Let me know what you think.

Have Fun,
Carl Muth
