Dear Michael and Lay Order
of St. Michael,
       It was a great 44th and well worth the expense of SMWA! I understand that you are carrying a deficit of $4300 from the enormous Anniversary costs. Here's my thoughtful gift (tax-deductible) to help cover the 44th Anniversary gap and to assist with our beloved seer's upcoming 19th Anniversary events.
