THANK YOU FOR TAKING ACTION!
YOUR SIGNATURE IS GREATLY APPRECIATED!
Now won’t you please take the extra few minutes to write to your elected officials?
We’ve done all the legwork and listed the contact information here for you!
REMEMBER: Nothing gives your words more power than a good, old-fashioned snail-mail! But if you cannot mail or fax a letter to your council-member and the officials listed below, please phone or email your thoughts to them.
(Tip: draft a letter in your own words then copy and paste it into individual emails to your council-member and the officials listed below, one at a time)
WHAT TO SAY:
Politely ask them to support the idea of allowing the Greater Astoria Historical Society to host and exhibit these precious artifacts while they await their new permanent home. Tell them that you feel that the LIC millstones deserve better treatment, and that you would like to see them safely exhibited in the community. Tell them that The Greater Astoria Historical Society has graciously offered to exhibit the stones TEMPORARILY until the new installation is complete and that you don’t understand why this reasonable idea is being ignored. Refer them the The Greater Astoria Historical Society for further information.
