Sabbatarian Singles Info

The free Sabbath singles pen-pal service formerly maintained by Janet McMillen has now been passed to Carol Smith. Janet is engaged to be married. Although Janet did not meet her husband-to-be from her singles service, at least one couple has met and married as a result of this service. About 200 people have participated in it so far. If you would like to participate, write to: Carol Smith, 3711 Corla Dr., Tampa, FL 33619

Another completely separate but more sophisticated service is provided by Mike Kawasaki. His service provides interest and backgound information (and a picture if you want), but allows you to remain anonymous unless you decide you want to respond to a person’s letter. A monthly subscription costs $10 per year ($12 for Canada and Mexico, $14 for other countries). There is also an option to be listed in the service for free. Send US funds payable to Mike Kawasaki, or write for more information to: Sabbath Singles Connection, 3229 Larkin Road, Biggs, California 95917.
