Welcome, once again, to New Hope, Pennsylvania and Lambertville, New Jersey. This month marks the first month we are using an email subscription service to send out this monthly newsletter! Yipppeee! Hooooraaayyy! We've gone BIG TIME! This service will manage all the parts of the email that I don't do very well - like making sure new subscribers get added and removing those who want to opt out.
Most of you should receive this email in HTML form (looks like the internet) but some may receive it in text format (no fancy colors and images) if your computers have limited capabilities. Please, if you notice any glitches, let me know ASAP!
Now, for the rest of the story
Hope Auto Show Aug 10-11 at the New Hope Solebury High School.
The FACT Aids walk is coming up in September 29th. FACT is looking for additional sponsors (to offer gifts and give-aways). Call Chris Beagle for more information 215-862-4600.
Anyway, previously I used Norton Anti-virus as my virus checking software. As a result of this KLEZ virus issue, I switched to Bit Defender (they actually responded to my email questions!) Bit Defender (www.bitdefender.com) offers a free KLEZ virus check. I am not necessarily recommending one virus check over another. I DO, however, recommend that each of you makes sure that, if you do not already have a virus protection program, you get one soon!
Local Color this month features the charming Mary Margaret - the "force" behind the New Hope Open Tennis Tournament!
Art & Artists highlights Pat Martin. I fell in love with Pat and her wonderful paintings - I hope you will too.
Around Town I didn't know about the Celebration of Farming until Ellen Pineno of the Lambertville Chamber of Commerce told me about it - and glad she did! Ya gotta see this place!
Theater & Music - Julia Yorks is an accomplished singer and actress and she is only 14 years old!!!! Read her fascinating story and you'll find out how to see her on TV this fall.

The winner of a Gift Basket from last month's Free Monthly Drawing (Jan Seminack's French Habits) is Tammy Cloud.
A couple of months ago I asked for stories from you folks describing how you came to be in New Hope. I only received two stories and I have somehow "misplaced" one of them. For those two who sent me their stories, could you kindly resend. And for those who wanted to but said, "Ah no one else will submit a story," be brave and SHARE! I'll publish them next month.
Well, looks like that's all for now! Again, please forward your comments on our new format to email@example.com.
