SignWriting List
June 18, 2006

Dear SW List -
Recently I have been writing a grant, and they asked me what our  
Mission was?

This is what I wrote. Does this seem clear to all of you? Anything  
you would add or change?...

A Mission Statement means ...what is our goal?....what is our hope  
for the future?...
