Hello Marc,

You will be happy to know that I joined MS as a paying member tonight (best $35 I've ever spent in my mind) - I have been fighting with myself over whether I should or not for the past month since I first came here (was told by a couple of people here that all mailings come in indestinguishable brown envelopes - hope so cause gossip travels like lightning in this small community)- am sort of still afraid that somehow it will leak out into my small community that I am an abuse survivor (not sure why this scares me so much? - the fact is - that I AM an abuse survivor and I should have nothing to hide - the perps are the ones who want to keep it hidden)- I will learn to get over that fear when and if that ever does happen - I will not let my fears keep me from stepping forward...

Thank you for the kick in the butt that I needed...

TJ jeff

I got my packet last week too and for the first time I saw my name in the member directory. What a great feeling. Very much like the feeling I got when I logged on and saw that people had responded to my first post here.

Thanks everybody, for giving and just for being here.

Go Marc,

NPR fundraiser you may not be, but pep rally leader could be your calling.

I got my mailing last week. The return address was a little of a shock. I'm glad that's been cleared up. My kids didn't see it and I hope the mailman didn't notice. I too live in a small town. Oh well, who cares, I'm telling people now anyway.

Thanks to the directors for all their work. This place has helped me so much in the 6-8 weeks I've been coming here.

Dave

Just an idea,

I was just thinking aloud while reading these posts, why not have lifetime memberships? I thought, for $1000.00 or so, with payments of course over a long time, why not have these kinds of memberships? It would raise revenue, and for the people who are not dues paying members yet, it could assist them in becoming full members. The NRA, as well as a few other organizations, do this, and it seems to work well. Just an idea.
