Places That Might Be Dead Or Have Moved:

* The Nevada County Peace & Justice Center in Grass Valley, California has either moved or closed. We got mail sent to them returned and their phone number is disconnected.

* The Wooden Spoon in Ann Arbor Michigan appears to be gone – we got mail returned and their phone # is disconnected. Let us know if they still exist.

* We got a package returned from Community Arts & Media Project in St. Louis but perhaps it was addressed wrong. Try 3022 A Cherokee St. St. Louis, MO 63118 instead of the address listed in the Organizer.
