Hi All !

Just a quick addendum to Judy Graves' kind note about these NEH grants that are
available to educators:  If any of you would like help in talking through a
proposal idea, please feel free to contact those of us at CCT.  We might also be
able to look over draft proposals and respond if you like.

This group has tremendous potential for helping educators learn to use American
Memory and similar resources, and we want to help you do this, so let us know if
we can...

Best,  Bill
