The Valley East Today Electronic Newsletter is published and distributed every Tuesday to thousands of people, most of whom reside in Valley East, Capreol, and the Greater Sudbury Area. However, we know that through the power of the internet, it is forwarded to individuals who are as far away as Florida, Vancouver and even Germany.  I hope you enjoy the feature articles and stories that are highlighted in this edition and I encourage you to forward this newsletter to as many of your friends and acquaintances in your "address book" as possible. With your help we expect the Valley East Today Electronic Newsletter to reach over 20,000 people each week.
