Gauzeitung Christmas Greetings - Deadline Oct. 15

I know.... It's such a beautiful fall and you're still dancing at Oktoberfeste but, yes, it's time to send in your Christmas greetings for the Gauzeitung.  In order to get the Christmas issue to you by the beginning of December, the greetings must be sent in/reserved by October 15. Even if you can't get the actual greeting to me by then, please let me know what size ad you or your Verein wants, and then take another week to email it. You can send a pdf of a finished ad or words and pictures/graphics for me to finish the ad for you. Ads will be in color.

He leaves behind his beloved wife, Barbara, mother Dhalma (and the late Anthony), and loving brothers Lawrence and Pierre, as well as many nieces and nephews.
