Wow Elizabeth, thanks for all the great resources! I'll certainly be
making some copies of those and giving them to my clients. In the
future, if you ever come across anything like that I can always use it.
I don't have a lot of time to volunteer/table but I can certainly send
interested users your way. Do you have any handbills/literature that I
can give people who are interested with your contact info? Maybe a
business card?
