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 renovations that never got
completed & saddled with mortgage pay-
ments she is struggling to pay.
Doug and Rebecca never made big money. Instead,
after their bookstore folded during the recession
of 2009, they worked jobs that helped newly-
arrived immigrants. Justice & kindness were more
important to Rebecca & Doug than money was.
Now, that priority has put Rebecca in a bind. So
help her out by making a contribution.
