gathering yet. Make sure you don't miss it! There is still
a great need to raise money for legal expenses, spreading
public awareness and education. Get involved and help make
a difference in Alabama. Donate something to sell or contact
a local merchant and ask for a donation. Volunteer to help
out with the sales and serving. Invite others to attend--even
if you don't think they'll come, let them know that a large
statewide group is actively supporting midwifery in Alabama.
Remember these efforts in your prayers.
