LampLighter Benefactors are much appreciated
By June Hurt
This time last year, I asked for a few good souls that were blessed with the means to consider showing their support for the LampLighter in a tangible way. By making a one time donation of $60 or more or a monthly donation of $5 or more, they could become a LampLighter Benefactor and be listed as such in every issue. I am pleased to say that 23 families and individuals responded to that request, and helped supplement our decreasing advertising sales, helping us continue to produce the LampLighter at the same quality and frequency another year.
As much as I would have loved for the local economy to recover and for businesses to be in a better position to show their support by purchasing more ads, I’m sorry to say that the outlook for 2012 remains the same. At the risk of sounding like a broken record, I’m asking again for your support. We have already gotten commitments from some of the existing LampLighter Benefactors to continue their support, and I hope that others decide to continue also. There’s always room for more!
