Initially, Greg Hall wrote an article for this spot. Greg was turning over the reins of Publication Chair to Elizabeth Metz.
As an emergency measure, Greg Hall is going to temporarily continue as Publication Chair while Elizabeth Metz is picking up the pieces after the recent Pilger tornado destroyed her home.
While we are all thankful that Elizabeth survived the storm, however, she and her family lost everything in that disaster and, because of that, a fund has been set up for donations that go straight to Elizabeth.
Thank you to Nanette Day for making this happen.
Through PayPal, you can donate funds to Elizabeth using the GIFT option and this link: https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_donations&business=artgirl%40gmail.com&lc=US&item_name=Elizabeth+and+John+Metz+Relief+Fund&no_note=0¤cy_code=USD&bn=PP-DonationsBF%3Abtn_donateCC_LG.gif%3ANonHostedGuest
If you’d rather send a check, please contact an NWG Board Member for mailing information.
Greg Hall’s article will appear at a later date.
