Thank You - IOWA Chapter!!!

I recently received a very nice surprise from the Iowa Chapter of MCA. They are our newest chapter and have hit the ground running!!  The surprise was the extremely nice letter and generous and thoughtful gift they enclosed.  This is the letter:
 
Gary,
 
The Iowa MCA Spring Meeting was held Saturday, April 13, 2013 in Grinnell, IA. There were approximately twenty-five members present.  At the meeting it was decided to give $500.00 to the Clipper magazine and also $500.00 to the MCA website.  Please find enclosed a check for the website.  We look forward to our State Show at Marshalltown this year.
 
Thanks
Doug Kruse, Treas.
 
It is great to not only see chapters taking it upon themselves to recognize the financial struggles of the national organization but their willingness to do something about it!  Thanks to all the Iowa officers and members for your kind generosity.  Your gift will definitely help the Clipper newsletter become a better publication and will help offset the operations and upkeep of the MCA website.
 
We continually look for donations for the website so if you like what you see maybe this will encourage you to help support this fun and informative site.
 
Thank you Iowa Massey Collectors for your gift and thank you to all who have donated to the website.
 
Checks can be made payable to:

RE:Thank You - IOWA Chapter!!!

Wow Gary ! Nice letter from Iowa and such a nice letter from you. We donated  $650 to the website and I don't remember getting any kind of recognition. Actually we issued a challenge to other chapters with no response until this gift from Iowa. My hat is off to them.

RE:Thank You - IOWA Chapter!!!

Hi Jerry,
 
You are absolutely correct!!  Since I was not on the Board at the time and the website was in terrible disarray and I didn’t get the letter, there probably was a lack of appreciation for the efforts Missouri put forth! With that in mind, let me reprint (with permission) from the July/August 2011 Clipper newsletter the challenge put forth by the Missouri Chapter and my response.
 
“WEB-SITE CHALLENGE”
 
“The Missouri Chapter is issuing this challenge to the other clubs and chapters. In addition to the individual members donations to the design a completely new web-site, the Missouri Chapter has donated from their treasury $10.00 per member for a total of $600 dollars to the Massey Collectors Association for the redesign and future maintenance of the web-site.  We believe there is no better use of our money than to further the future of the Massey Collectors Association and certainly the computer and the internet is the present and the future.  So we challenge the other chapters to step forward and do the same or more. What better way can you find to spend your accumulated funds????”

We hope other chapters will pick up your challenge.

…and to make the pot even sweeter, when I see you at Massey Days I will give you a great big juicy kiss and a monster hug.  It doesn’t get any better than that!!  LOL!! 
 
Thanks Jerry.
