|Help Us Go Green!
We are trying to reduce our effects on the environment with your
help. Every year, we send out hundreds of paper reminder cards
through the mail. We would like to decrease that number to as
low as possible by switching to an email reminder system.
If you have email and would like to help our Green efforts, please
send us your email address at email@example.com or
let us know what your e-mail is at your next visit to the office.
For those without email, we will continue to send cards in the mail.
Your email addresses will be kept secure and not sold/distributed
to third party companies.
Thanks so much!
