from Rob Carillio:

Chris... here's news on the official first sign installation.. NANFA's web
site IS listed on the sign, and the $400.00 was used to produce the site
specific sequel which is now complete, and will be installed next. We have
sent letters out to various entities with properties along the river to
solicit the securing of future signs. We are also looking at the pursuing of
the grant monies from various sources to pay for future signage... NOW our
natives are officially in the public eye in a big way!!! Thought this
would be good to share with the list.. read on.... Rob C.
