Communities Directory. Proceeds will help the FIC continue to 
bring the exciting news of community to a world hungry for it. You 
help in two ways: 1) bring items to donate to the auction-- products,
crafts, services that can be delivered locally, a weekend stay for 
at your luxurious home... use your imagination! 2) bring your
wallet--there will be bargains galore, and every dollar spent will be
used to make community that much more accessible to those 
seeking it.
