Bad News: With regard to Rocktober-Fundraiser hats...we’ve run out of blue pom-pom beanies. We’ll be contacting sustaining donors who asked for blue beanies with options.
Good News: The reason we’ve run out of blue beanies is that we (meaning all of us, you included) have straight crushed our fundraising goal for the month of October. Seriously, five days in and our goal for the month is toast. We were hoping to increase our total monthly recurring donations to $500, and we currently stand at $649.
More Bad News: SO, we’re raising the goal.
More Good News: AND, the local family who offered a $2000 match if we could make it to $500/month in sustaining donations? They’ve upper their match to $5000 if we can hit $1500/month! Can you help?
Still More Good News: The Summersville stairs are complete. We know some of you are very fond of the ladder. And why not? It’s quirky and epitomizes an era. But, when we came to the Army Corps with the money you raised in Dylan Hague’s memory specifically for Summersville projects, one of the things they expressed interest in was a way to improve access for potential rescues. These stairs do that.
Work will also begin very soon on the Orange Oswald Seawall—we’ll keep you posted.
We are all stewards of land once explored and occupied by Moneton and Tutelo tribes, as well as many others now long lost to history. Respect for them must be present in everything we do.
