As Kenny Rogers sang of The Gambler, You gotta know when to hold ‘em, know when to fold ‘em, know when to walk away, and know when to run.
We are sad to announce that it’s time for the PBCOC to fold ‘em and walk away. The PBCOC is dying. Membership is shrinking so that we have to carry more than 10% freebies in order to keep our mailing volume over 200 pieces. We will stop collecting dues, fund the next four Bulletins from our checking account (at about $1000 each if the editor opts to put in more color pages), and close up operations as of 1 July 2024. We will divide the remainder of the account among members who have expiration dates beyond that date and mail them checks. If your membership expires in the first half of 2024, do not renew. We will carry you through June. You will not receive a check because you will have received what you paid for.
It’s been a good run, but it’s time to quit. In addition, your editor has accepted a position as a full-time minister at a nearby church as of January 1, so he won’t have the free time he now has.
