    Would you be so kind and please keep me on the list for this Spring Conference?

    Maggie McNeice and I head up the Casco Bay Scribes, a calligraphy guild in Southern Maine, and would love to not only attend this event but have a booth and let the participants of your conference know of the guild, its meetings and educational events.

    Thank you
