How to Receive the Buzzer Newsletter via Email           

Snail-mail is a thing of the past for some members.  If you would like to receive your Buzzer by email you must send an email to with your request. Remember to print your newsletter at home, if you need to.

"It takes me about 1 minute to send the Buzzers by email. By email you get them in color! and in the memo line please type “Buzzer.” That way our Treasurer gets the correct email address and can easily add it to the membership list. Last month we sent 308 by snail mail and 297 via email. Not only does it take a lot of paper to mail the newsletter but it takes us nearly about 5 hours to fold, tape, label, and put stamps on the newsletters", says our Editor, Joli Winer. 

"Be sure and add my email address to your address book so that it doesn’t go to your spam,"
