I wouldn't waste time with email, anybody vaguely web savvy will instantly assume that its a scam.
Well, maybe not a scam, but certainly not something to take the time to open and read. We all get way too many of them each day.
As jamesMP and onlineleben suggested the local angle might be your best bet. Get yourself out, rub elbows at chamber, church, fraternal and whatever other organizations are around. Face to face relationships when you're not asking for business have a way of becoming very productive.
