Sponsors would come through individual lake associations. This would pay for the cost of the printing. Connie agreed to be the coordinator of the ads. Each committee member would attempt to sell 5 ads and report to Connie. Businesses would pay by check and the town would send out a receipt. Each ad, with the business’ agreement would contain a sentence at
