Spring 2010 Newsletter Madness
( Photo: That's me, Marge Gibson, Executive Director, in my usual pose. I spend hours every day at the computer while listening to my "Music to Inspire Positive Thinking" CD. Notice the sticky notes all over my desk and computer screen to remind me to call "you".)
Our newsletter arrives in the mailboxes of many of our supporters four times a year. What does it take to get a newsletter out here at REGI? LONG before it ever gets to newsletter stage, we are feverishly working on the copy to make it the best we can for our supporters. We listen to what you want to see, and that is usually photos of our patients. But, if you have some ideas and don't see them on our pages, give us a call or email your ideas for future editions.

( Photo: Thanks to the E.O. Johnson Office Make-over we won in May of 2009 , we print our newsletters in house! Part of that prize was this incredible copy machine that is so smart it almost has to have its own social security number! THANKS E.O. Johnson!! )
