OB Rag Fund Raising Nears $500 !
STOP THE PRESSES ! THIS JUST IN: Current OB Rag fund raising is nearing five hundred dollars in donations and pledges. Wow! That’s right – this current OB Rag – this blog- is currently doing fund raising and we’re doing this noble task by offering many of the old OB Rags up for donations. Original copies of the fabled Ocean Beach community newspaper, radical and raw, now can be in your hands. If you buy now, you can help send me on a cruise to Hawaii – yeah, I wish! Go here to see all the Rags available – remember first come, first served.
We have expenses – we’re buying a new large scanner to enable us to scan all the original Rags without the efforts we now make. Also on our wish list is a better camera. We also need a larger computer. Here’s your chance to help us out.
