First of all…OUR ROCKTOBER FUNDRAISER JUST STARTED! As the the premier party-thrower east of the mighty Miss, we’ve struggled a bit this past year (due to the SARS-CoV-2) to raise funds. The Appalachian Outdoor Film Fest was neither indoors nor out and (Not) Work Week became (Not)-(Not) Work Week. So, we’re making up for all of that funding lost and that work not worked this month.
Learn all about the ROCKTOBER FUNDRAISER right here.
Here’s the short version: We’re doing a ton of work at Summersville Lake (in fact it began yesterday) and asking for sustaining donations to qualify for a 4-to-1 match! Pro-tip: sustaining donors get NRAC swag; the trucker’s cap is especially dope.
Yes, we will happily accept one-time donations, too!
On the JEDI front, we have our route-name process, which is heavily weighted toward working with first ascencionists, in place and working. And, we literally have a team of lawyers working on the guiding scholarship. Annnnnd, we submitted land-acknowledgement ad art to Wolverine Publishing just yesterday. Committee members are working as we speak on an anti-racism statement for the guidebook, as well.
