Dear MWS Community: I am looking for a room to rent one night a week during the school year while I am conducting my research at the MWS.

If you or anyone you know may be interested, please call or email Melissa at (603)788-3388 or email@example.com. I am a quiet, responsible, non-smoker who loves both children and pets. I can supply references upon request. Melissa A. Grella, PhD Candidate, Environmental Studies, Antioch University New England (09-27)
