GO TO OUR FACEBOOK PAGE: It will look like what you see above, with the exception of the top picture possibly changing from time to time. Notice that there is a circle around a little "icon" that says "Post". This is all you have to do to post a message on our page! Just click on that little icon. You can add pictures as well. There are also other links that will take you to photos, etc, that are posted here.
Share your local events being hosted by your chapter or state, perhaps interesting articles or information you have found. Whatever you would like to share. HOWEVER: You must be careful not to post anything too "off-color", inappropriate, or just plane rude. If you do, we will take it down. Try to keep to the rule that if you would not tell it to your mother or your daughter, it does not belong on this page!
