Go Fund Me To Rebecca Rutledge
For Her Generosity To The
Columbus Folk Music Society, Etc.
Remember the old Areopagitica Book
Store on N. High St. in Clintonville?
for several yrs, it became a 2d home
to the Columbus Folk Music Society,
& its monthly coffeehouse, Remember
how owners Doug & Rebecca Rutledge
welcomed us?
Doug died last year, & Rebecca is now
severely financially pinched, saddled
with a house that got torn up by reno-
vations that never got completed &
saddled with mortgage payments she
is struggling to pay.
Doug & Rebecca never made big money.
Justice & kindness were more important
to them than money was. Now, that priority
has put Rebecca in a bind. So help her
out by making a contribution.
