Dear Mr. Lessard:

I have been a fan of your listserv for many years, having been a volunteer environmental radio broadcaster on community stations here in the U.S. Thank you for all of the information that you share.

I now work for a non-profit organization ( and an accredited graduate school ( based in rural West Virginia. Since 1992, Future Generations has specialized in community-based approaches to social change, health, conservation, and peace building.

Kind Regards,
