I've sent the first batch of names to the publisher, Victor Craig, so that he can send a copy of ARJ #176 (Mar/Apr 2020) directly to everyone's email. It will be going out in the next few days. I've sent reminders to all those who have fallen off the roster from my personal email address, in hopes that the automated reminders were all shunted to a spam box somewhere. A few members have returned, but there are a couple dozen who are still MIA. Anyone who signs up in the next couple weeks can be backdated to 01 March, and get the current ARJ issue right now, while it's still fresh. Feel free to ping me directly at admin@NAPARS.ORG with any questions. Peace. -Wade, admininstrator

In hopes of expanding our audience to more youthful folks who hang out on other platforms besides facebook, I've started an Instagram page here: https://www.instagram.com/napars1/ I'm still trying to figure out how to use that to best advantage. Maybe I should recruit a 20-something to help? Wish me luck. Peace. -Wade, admin.
