Ned:

OK, so just where is this Cessnock, Oklahoma? As a native Oklahoman,
I’ve never heard of the place and there are parts of the Sooner State
where a burg with 11,558 souls would be considered a major city – say
out in the Panhandle. I know Sallisaw, Henryetta, Wagoner, Catoosa and I

Could you please include the following request in Monday’s edition?

Many thanks!

Beatrice Bernescut:

REQUESTING BETA-READERS

My organization is currently in the process of writing its new brochure.
As we are not particularly well known (at least in the States), I would
like to do a sort of “virtual focus group” on this new text.
Essentially, the aim is to find out if the new brochure 1) clearly
explains the role and purpose of the organization; 2) uses language
which is sufficiently clear and easy to understand; and 3) defines the
grant-making process. This will be a rapid turnaround situation – any
volunteers would need to read, review and comment within 2 days. If you
are interested, please drop me a line at beatriceb@global.t-bird.edu

Many thanks for your help!
