TCN Fundraiser – Last Week

It's Memorial Day in the US but that doesn't mean the TCN takes a day off.  In fact, the TCN is sent every weekday regardless of holidays, weather or vacations.  For example, Friday's TCN was put together in a public library in Port Henry, New York while I took a short vacation on Lake Champlain in Vermont.  Twice a year I hold a month-long fundraiser to support the work needed to send you the TCN.  A number of you have already contributed and I want to thank you.  Those still considering sending a contribution will find information on how to contribute below.  Thank you!
