We are accepting applications for the George and Gwen Rittgers State
Convention Stipends between now and 5:00 pm February 26. This deadline is
unmovable. See the criteria below for more information. If you apply you
should go ahead and make hotel reservations but do not pay your registration
and meals  until you hear about the committee's decision as generally we do
not issue funds directly to those going but cover part of the registration
and hotel costs so, we will let you know at time of the decision what you
need do.

I will send a second Email with the application form as soon as I find off
my old computer Hopefully today.

Eugene Coulter, Chair Rittgers fund Committee
