Roger used to solicit donations every couple years. I haven’t done so because the basic operation of the club doesn’t take much money. It’s chump change compared to owning a Jeep. 😉
People appreciate the club and want to contribute. Cash is not particularly needed. It would be better for you to lead a run. Pay it forward. If you have benefited, if you appreciate what you have gotten from the club, pay it forward to other members.
(I’d also welcome any expert hints on the peculiarities of WordPress. 😉 )
