  1. Eljay, Hi,
    Thank you again for posting the event on your site last year.
    As per our last internet conversation (and sorry for not following up sooner), I was wondering how we can collaborate together.
    I did a lot of changes since the past few months and it is time now for HarmoNyom to move to the second step!
    HarmoNyom is now on Facebook (NY and NJ), on Twitter and other blogs to come. The monthly newsletter has been improved and the website is now almost completed. http://www.HarmoNYom.org.
    Let me know.
    Best regards,
    Veronique
