You may note that this issue is Volume 6 Issue 51 which means that we will soon be completing our sixth year of publishing this weekly enewsletter and beginning the seventh or Volume 7. We feel that doing this for 312 consecutive weeks deserves some recognition for persistence. Our email circulation has grown from 200 to almost 8,000 per week Six years ago we published event information for two clubs we now have over 210 organizations identified that have had events posted.
We could not have done this without the help of the sponsors who purchase advertisements and you the readers who make the sponsors happy to participate,
Postal rates go up each year and the cost of printing also increases from year to year but as long as "Internet Neutrality" is preserved the cost of sending 8,000 emails is the same as sending one.
The commercial daily and weekly print newspapers are all contracting. But, in spite of the rapid growth of social networking like Facebook, MySpace, Linkedin, and the up and coming Twitter we feel that this type of newsletter will continue to be important to you.
We would like to get input from you. What should we do better? What should we stop doing? What should we start doing? You do not have to justify your opinions or expand upon them., just a short line to let us know what you think.
If you like what you are reading, let your friends know about this newsletter and ask them to sign up for their free subscription.
The coupons are presented at the end of the newsletter. We hope that you will find them beneficial and money saving. You can print the last pages and present them to the sponsors or you can click on the coupon and fill in the form that pops up which will enable us to email the coupon to you.
We have received word that some people are having trouble printing the coupons. If you are using Yahoo or Prodigy to receive your mail, you might have to use the option at the top of the newsletter to get a better view of the newsletter.
In any case you can click on the coupon and the fill out the form so that we can email a copy of the coupon to you.

3rd Annual Dessert Reception Shalom Ministry
FRI 2009-05-29 Shalom Ministry is an Evangelistic Messianic Christian Ministry reaching out to the Jewish people with the Gospel of their Messiah. We believe that the Jewish community is in need of the Gospel and that this is a neglected area of witness by most churches. Our evangelistic focus is based on Romans 1:16. We affirm that this still stands today in the fact that God is eternal, and so is his word. We are here to witness the Good News of Yeshua (Jesus) and the gift of eternal life to the Jewish and Non-Jewish communities.
Our guest speaker this year is Bob Dutko from WMUZ FM
Topic : ”Why Christians need to stand by Israel!
BOB DUTKO is a leading voice today in the fearless defense of Christian truth, using logic, reason, science, history, and factual evidence to disarm the critics and equip believers. Bob is the former National Press Secretary for Christian Coalition of America and currently the #1 Christian Talk Radio Host in Michigan. He hosts "The Bob Dutko Show" locally, as well as the syndicated "Defending the Truth with Bob Dutko”, heard on Crawford Broadcasting stations nationwide.
