We are told that safety regulations are being stiffened by organizations abroad, and strongly recommend that all groups review their policies and practices to make certain all possibilities for accidents are foreseen. Children too close to engines in motion, or to moving parts of tractors, could bring trouble upon themselves-with resultant trouble for organizations.

We gladly remind our readers again that we now handle credit card sales (Visa and Mastercard) and look forward to doing more and more business through this convenience. Remember that if you wish to use these charges, we'll need to know your card number, its expiration date and your phone number.

Good cheer to one and all. We deeply appreciate the reliance you put on us, with your stories and ads. If we can serve you further in any way, make a suggestion.
