Happy 4th of July!
Amidst the cookouts, watermelon, family, friends and fireworks, take the time to remember where we came from and where we are going as a country. America is still the greatest country on Earth. Despite the recession, politics, unstable world events, we still are blessed to be here. We are blessed to live here and blessed to be able to serve our members.

Illinois, Colorado and Montana each have passed laws regarding notary records effective June, July and October respectively. For many years we have taught you that the notary journal is your best friend if you are ever called to court. It is 100% proof positive that the constituent appeared before you for notary service. As was the case in a recent Illinois court case, the notary could have saved $30,000 had he properly maintained the journal and followed sound notary practices.
Our journals have been flying off the shelves. In fact, we are nearly completely out. Our next shipment is scheduled to be here on July 7. We are offering our high quality journals for 1/2 price through July 7. Stock up now and save yourself from a potential lawsuit later.
