Summer Newsletter

The deadline for the Summer 2016 issue of the Area VII quarterly newsletter was Sunday, May 22, and the response was underwhelming, to say the least. We received one paid ad from Barbara Naviaux, and one ranch news article from Caringello Farms. Thanks Barb and Emma!

Come on, folks! If you want this newsletter to continue, you need to contribute!
