  About the Printed Wishbook:
Stocks of the 2017-18 print version have diminished at local free-literature racks. Some local library branches may have a supply. MP Media, sponsor and publisher the printed version, has agreed to publish the print version again this year.  Ronald McDonald House was also a repeat sponsor.
Agencies: You will soon be receiving an email request from the Wishbook staff asking you to confirm that your information is correct. Please follow directions in that letter, and send us a return note if you want to continue your listing (even if your listing is OK). 

If you need a copy, or multiple copies of the previous 2017-2018 print version, please send an email with your address & quantity to wishbook@rochester.rr.com.
