WOAS Equipment Replacement Campaign

Have you ever felt snake bit?  We had two Ford Taurus Wagons, drove them for twenty years, and then they stopped making them.  That is okay, we said, our kids drove the same Mercury Sable through 8 years of college….we liked it, we can get one of those….and they stopped making them!

We were just informed that the SCHWAN’s CARES PROGRAM is also going away!  They are sending us a $20 bonus for ending before our campaign was finished, but we are still sad as it was a great way to make the station a little bit of working capital without passing the hat!  That is the way it goes!

Thank you to everyone who helped by checking the right boxes when ordering from Schwans – we earned a little over $120 this year that will be applied to a new studio mic…we appreciate your efforts on our part.

Of course, we COULD probably remind you that we are a TAX FREE, SCHOOL OWNED station, so you can still make donations to our cause…but only if you want to!

Our next scheduled FUND RAISING EVENT will be at the 2019 HOMETOWN CHRISTMAS CRAFT SALE at the Ontonagon Area Schools building in December – come for a visit, check out our surplus equipment – maybe you will find something you like!  Thanks again – as ever – Ken, WOAS GM
