VERY good point. I am the webmaster for the Gathering Waters District web
page, and I agree.
But to agree is not enough....to act, that is the real test.
So, take a look at http://www.gwd.org and let me know if the changes I made
helped to make it clear where the District is located. In addition, there
is another map which shows the Districts within the Council.
Thanks for the advice, from a customer's point of view!
