The fine print.

Pledge Drive ahead.  Our fall “opportunity for investment” (like that?) will start on Saturday, October 16 and run through Saturday, October 23 and we’ve got lots of fun planned.  But we’re starting off with some great excitement!

To encourage early gifts (which keeps us from panic attacks as the week progresses), we’re giving away an iPad to those who contribute during the pre-drive push – starting now (as in Oct. 6) and running through 9am on Monday, October 18.  Wanted you to know about it first!

And of course, there’s fine print, so we’re posting that here, just so you know.
