WRITE LETTERS (If you want, call me to pick up your letter. I'll get it the office where it will be copied and mailed.)
WEAR ORANGE-October 20-24. Your MTMNM tee shirt is best, but any orange will help.
ATTEND THE 10/20 FORUM--this is the biggie at 5:30 PM at the Fiesta Resort. Wear orange there, too.
