We will call our members inviting them to our annual meeting on January 28, requesting them to pay dues for 2012, and suggesting they connect with other Peace Action members in their area.
We will divide up the names based on each caller's location in the state, so that people will be calling their neighbors, and beginning to know them. If you let us know in advance that you will be there and what town you are from, we'll get your list of neighbors ready. Write firstname.lastname@example.org or call 617-354-2169.
