*If you have difficulty clicking through to the payment page when selecting credit card payment, either there is an apostrophe in a last name, which confuses Constant Contact, or the firewall on your Internet is blocking WePay (Constant Contact's payment provider). If this happens, please contact Susan for assistance.
