We gather at 2:00 p.m. to write postcards to our representatives. In the last few months our state and national elected leaders have received hundreds of postcards from Salina area league members and other friends who have dropped by our table to write about their legislative concerns. The league provides the postcards, representative’s addresses and postage. All you have to do is add your voice! (Check our calendar for possible cancellations around the holidays.)
