Hi Alan,

I am sorry to see you leave. You have been terrific!

 From another email, David Mertz is quoted as saying that there are only
about 100 members on this mailing list. If that is the case, that may
explain why we are having trouble getting funds. Is there another tier
of people connected to OVC that are not privy to this list? To gain
funding, you usually need a large base and a way that members can
contribute - financially and in other ways. They must also feel that
they are making a difference by their membership and contributions.
There are questions that I have that follow on from these. Do we have
any answers for these starting questions? Thanks.
