I think there are several members in the Eastern PA area. Good luck with starting a chapter!

Which side of PA is Berks? I just started a Pittsburgh-area chapter. Feel free to join us, or find out about starting your own wherever you are.

Thanks ladies! We would love the PDF help--we are going to put all our brochures for chapters in PDF and then get a code for chapter presidents to put in so they can get access to printing them out (along with "printing guidelines" so we can keep the quality consistent). That would be great.

My understanding is that Dan Snyder's wife (Tanya) the owner of the Washington Redskins, had preeclampsia. I have not been able to confirm this though.

Any contacts you have there are much appreciated.

Anne,

My husband works with PDF files all the time. He is willing to offer any help he can. He can make them interactive (fill out forms online) or just plain readable ones. We are both also web developers if you need any help in that area, but Angela is doing a great job as it is. I'm more of a programmer, but my husband might also be able to help in the graphics area although it's not his specialty. But I personally think he's pretty good. [:)] Let us know what we can do to help.

Anne, did the Redskins' coach's wife really have PE, or was that a general example? (Was it the owner's wife, maybe?) I have a friend whose husband used to work for the one of those folks. (Try to wrap your brain around that one.)

I also have a friend who is a freelance writer for a local county paper here in metro Atlanta. I don't know how much pull she has over her assignments, but I can ask!

And, finally, I am more than willing to talk to the press about my personal experience!

The concert that is being dedicated to my mom is March 11th--so I am going to look into coming up for that. We have contacts at the ADN and since the concert is in my mom's memory--maybe we could get some tag-team story out of this...daughter carrying on her mom's legacy? :) yeah, such a diva.

I just love Anchorage during Break Up! (not)

Why couldn't they do the dedication in JUNE!!
