LWA Wants YOU to do Publicity

I Want YOU to do Publicity

During WW II the iconic posters of Uncle Sam pointing and saying “I Want You” were an incentive to participate in some important job supporting the war effort   The Lehigh Wheelman could now certainly produce such a poster to encourage someone to handle publicity. 

For many years Dick McCreight helped disseminate information about LWA special events, promoting these events and thereby increasing participation.  Dick has decided to step away from this role.  The club is therefore seeking one or two (or more) members to step up and handle publicity for the club's special events.  The publicity tasks can certainly be divided among several members.

Please take a look at the summary of the things Dick did and consider volunteering to handle some or all of these jobs.  I know Dick will assist you in every possible way. 

If you are willing to assume responsibility for any of these jobs please contact Paul Smith (LWA President) at pocono723@yahoo.com or Dick McCreight at dickmcc@ptd.net.
