Receiving the 34th Story

By Evelyn Lawrence

If you are currently enjoying this issue of the 34th Story on our web site, you may wish to
discontinue your mailed edition. Or, if your household receives two copies of each issue, you may wish to discontinue one of those.

If either of those conditions apply or for any other reason you don’t want a posted copy, please contact Evelyn Lawrence at: or at: 905-642-5435 so that your name can be removed from our mailing list. With printing and mailing costs increasing, we would prefer not to post unwanted copies.

If you have any other concerns regarding our mailing list please let Evelyn know. We realize that some copies may go astray after they leave our addressing service but we have no control over that.

We do our best to keep our lists current and up to date so that you can enjoy every issue of our fine newsletter. ■

Are You Receiving the Email Notices?

By Shelagh Harris

Are you missing something in your life - like “RTO District 34 GWF notice” reminders? Did you once receive these e-mail notices but no longer do?

As the author of these “reminders” and since Outlook took over my hotmail account, I always get 45 to 50 postmaster notices that these are undeliverable - for some unknown reason.
If this is the case for you, please take a moment and send me a quick e-mail to re-establish your e-mail and I will make every effort to make sure your e-mail address is corrected on one of the RTO 34 lists (I have 12 of these with up to 49 addresses on each).
