TCN Fundraiser – That's All Folks!           

Those of you of a certain age will remember the Jerry Lewis MDA Telethon each Labor Day weekend. Whenever there was a new contribution total to announce, there'd be drum roll and the amount would appear on a big tote board. The TCN fundraiser is a bit more low-budget and less dramatic, but I do want to thank you for your support. It's that support that encourages me to put the newsletter together each day, whether it's a holiday, I'm on vacation, or it's just a run-of-the-mill weekday. Of course, you can still contribute, not just today but anytime that's convenient. If you scroll below you'll find the PayPal link and my address to mail a donation.
