Hi-- 

Could you forward my name--as a member-- to the person who has the library
so  can borrow some books? I did not have a member number to allow me to do
the borrowing (I that thrown out the back cover of the last hard cover). I'm
particularly interested in the serviceberry pamphlets.

Thanks. 

Idell Weydemeyer

NAFEX members can request a list of members names/emails etc. for
their state or region from me.  Looks like we have nearly 50 members
in North Carolina.
