Request for funds

Dear friends,

MBVRC is requesting your tax deductible donations to support our education and research funding program. Specifically, we would like to purchase a lap top, a digital projector with remote controller, and a slide scanner. These would be used for our public presentations, and to scan and store many donated images like the one shown here. We are currently borrowing equipment, which is inconvenient and not always practical.

From our Wm. Cochrane photo archive. Baker climbing party, 1920. Your donations help us scan and maintain archived photos like this one.

See the directions at left to make a donation. Surplus donations will go into our research endowment.

We are not selling t-shirts this year, although we do have a few leftovers from last year. Leave a comment to ask for specifics. MBVRC will also be offering fundraising field trips later in the summer to see interesting geology at Mount Baker. The first trip will probably be in late June to deposits fo the Middle Fork lahar, the largest known to have descended from the volcano, and may have reached the Fraser River. Watch for announcements via your blog subscription.

Cheers,

MBVRC Board of Directors

Dave Tucker, Pete Stelling, Kevin Scott
