Yard sign update

Our volunteers have distributed thousands of yard signs this fall. We ran out on Saturday. If we are able to get more signs or point folks to other opportunities, we will let you know on www.danedems.org and our Facebook page.

We realize our distribution system didn't get signs to everyone who wanted one. We are an all-volunteer operation, and we had to front the funds to obtain the signs, so if you didn't get a sign please understand we are doing the best we can with the human and financial resources we have.
