**Message from Mark Robinson, FREEDOM FUELS, INC. **

FFI is currently in search of a retail location to partner with to bring Biodiesel into the community.

The ideal would be somewhere where they are excited about BioD and have a convenient location.

An interim option may be for the interest group to coop to share a 'non-commercial' site.

Suggestions are welcome.

Have a great weekend!

Mark A. Robinson
