On behalf of the Montana Chapter
Executive Committee, I would like to voice a hearty
"Thank you!" to all the folks who responded to
our recent fund-raising appeal.
Your response far exceeded any other we have ever
received, for a total, as of early September, of
This amount, in turn, is roughly one-fourth of
the chapter's budget for the current year.
The result is that we will enter the year 2000
with a strong balance, which in turn will allow us to
work on all those priorities we mentioned in the appeal
I believe that this strong
financial position for next year is especially important
in view of the opportunities we have to work in the area
of political training, with the expectation of resulting
activism in campaigns that should result in the election
of environmentally-friendly legislators and state-level
officials; we have better prospects next year than
perhaps at any time during the 1990s.
And, your support will enable us to
do a better job of keeping the federal and state
agencies honest in that process, hopefully keeping a lid
on ill-advised timber sales, new mine proposals, and the
use of off-road vehicles on trails whose use should be
limited to muscle-powered propulsion.
So...again...thanks to the
