The Town Crier is NOT an official "nonprofit organization" (for practical editorial reasons it could not be). Therefore, your membership contributions are NOT tax-deductible.

And we know our members appreciate that we cannot allow the fact of their memberships to control the paper's ongoing editorial policies.

If you previously had an uncompleted subscription before we went "free to the Hill," or if you have an off-Hill subscription now, you may contact Becky for credit against your new Membership.
