Our chapter members have an opportunity to remember their child, sibling, or grandchild by sponsoring the printing and/or postage of an edition of our newsletter. The newsletter is our chapter's largest expense (mailed 4 times a year), yet one of our most important ways of outreach and support to our present and future members. Some of our members like to sponsor a newsletter for their child’s birthday or remembrance day. You can sponsor both postage and printing, or you can do one or the other.

  1. Cost of printing the newsletter: approximately $200
  2. Cost of postage: approximately $100 (depending on number of pages, weight of paper and cost of postage)

Your sponsorship will be acknowledged in the newsletter with a small photo of your child, grandchild or sibling.

If you would like to sponsor a newsletter, please call Cathy at 651.459.9341 or email at tcfstpaul2012@comcast.net.
