    1. Dropped by Woods library and this effort is ongoing outside the library, with FB friends Mariana and Martha. Register to vote today if you aren’t registered. 3455 N. 1st Ave. They were talking to quite a few adults and children too. While I was there a British fellow stopped by the booth and talked about having a monarchy, with rule by royalty.
