Hi everyone,

I apologize profusely for the doubling up of emails that add to the clutter in your inbox; we obviously had a bit of a slip up sending out to you recently a clearly marked "draft" version.  As it happens, the draft was also incorrect about the new book for our book discussion group, and I didn't want anyone to be led astray if it could mean you'd purchase the wrong book and have to hassle with a return, so I didn't dare put off this correction.  The right title is given below, along with more information about the program we have planned for the January general membership meeting.  Here's hoping you can join us then or at another WFPI gathering soon, and may you find many joys in the new year as we work together to mend our broken world.

    If you have our latest matching T-shirt that says, "If war is the answer, we're asking the wrong question", please wear it, but come to walk with any peace/anti-war shirt you have.
