    By the way, those of you in Namibia can buy calendars for yourself for N$50 -- contact Dani Abrams (Mariental) or Jeremy Polio (Owamboland) for more details.

      By the way, those of you in Namibia can buy calendars for yourself for N$50 -- contact Dani Abrams (Mariental) or Jeremy Polio (Owamboland) for more details. But yeah, buying calendars is ultimately for *your* benefit, so ask your family/friends back home to buy one (or more!) -- thanks!

      Keep on smiling,
      Liz :)

      > AIDS awareness as one of their secondary projects.
      > In order to finance these projects, our committee has created a

      > Your support of this fundraiser would be truly appreciated, and
