Hi All,

Your friendly MUNINET listserv administrator here.  Hope you all had a
happy and safe holiday.

Just wanted to congratulate everyone on participating in MUNINET.  There
are currently 72 people subscribed to this list and many of you are
feeling more comfortable sending notes to the listserv.  Even more
important, people are feeling more comfortable responding to questions
which is what it's all about.

Now your mission, should you accept, is to contact at least one person
before the end of the year who isn't on the list and convince them to
subscribe. The more people we get to sign on and use the system, the more
valuable a communication tool it will become.  I'd love to have 100 people
subscribed by Jan 1.  I've included below a copy of the instructions on
how to get on the list for those of you who may have lost yours :-)

Thanks again for everyone's help in getting the word out.
