A Call To Arms was published in the quarterly journal of the Clan Macpherson US Branch (The Urlar) I want that message with you.

I am writing this letter to you as your Urlar Editor, as a Past Branch Chairman, as a member of the Museum Advisory Committee, and most importantly as your cousin in Clan Macpherson. I am joined in writing this letter by my wife Bonnie, who is your current Branch Chairman, and was also elected as Vice Chairman of the Association this summer.
Our Clan Museum is in dire need of your support. The roof and the building in general, is in such bad condition, that water is leaking into the exhibits and presenting grave danger to our priceless historical exhibits.
In the days of yore, when the clan was in trouble, one would hear the battle cry of Creag Dhubh! Today, I am shouting that battle cry and asking the US Branch members to rally to help the clan.
A total of 250,000 GBP is needed to make the repairs. To date, only 50,000 GBP has been collected.
Branches around the world are being asked to support this fundraising effort. The US Branch is the largest branch by far, and we have set a fundraising target of 150,000 dollars. We realize this is a lofty goal, but we think it is possible to achieve. We are asking each Branch member to donate at a GoFundMe page set up for this fundraising effort. We are also asking you to get some of your friends and family to donate for this very worthy cause. We kicked off a GoFundMe page on Thursday August 30th, and it will close on December 31, 2018. Why not make a Christmas gift to a friend or family member as a donation to this very worthy cause?
If you want to write a check instead of donating on the GoFundMe page, please make the check payable to CMAUS and make a note in the memo line “Museum Roof & Building”. Please send your check to our Treasurer Bruce Sterba and he will send you a letter to use for your tax deductions. Bruce will let Bonnie and I know he received your check so we can keep an up-to-date tally on the fundraising campaign. Bruce’s address is PO Box 2763, Coppell, TX 75019.
The US Branch of Clan Macpherson is a certified 501c3 non-profit organization and all of your donations are tax deductible. Please support this very noble cause and help to ensure our museum endures for generations to come. Bonnie and I want to thank you in advance for your donations. And that is how I see it from the Editor’s chair. And I am confident that is how Bonnie sees it from the US Branch Chairman’s chair.
