    9. Carol Dunn has sent this message about Entertainment books:
    Please email to everyone in your chapter:

    For us to get $17.50 profit, we have to sell at least 35 Entertainment books this year. So far I have orders for 7. Buy one book for your chapter as a ways-and-means project. I need your support if we are going to make it.

    Entertainment books are half price this year (i.e. $17.50, your price, selling price of $35). This is the last year at this price. Next year the profit will only be $7.

    Call me at 613-596-0321 before Thursday at lunch time so that I can bring the number of books you want to the October city council meeting. Please bring the money with you.
