New Rig Fund Raising News -- Deadline Extended

We are VERY close to making our purchase!

Because of some "potential" money, our "matching" donor has agreed to extend the deadline for the matching grant for another week, until the 8th of September, -- but that will be it.

I checked with our Treasurer (Cliff Smith) today about how the drive is going. So far, we have raised close to $28K over the $20K the Board has agreed to spend from our treasury. That leaves us only $7,000 short of the $35K we set as our fund raising goal!

There are additional contributions that have been promised, but not yet received. We need to keep working to achieve our goal.
