Legacy 3 Campaign
The 2020 Legacy 3 tax statements are in the mail. Anyone who made payments on their pledge in 2020 should receive one. Please let Alison Bennett ( know if there are any errors or if you think you should have received one and did not. 
Anyone with an outstanding balance on their pledge will be receiving a statement next month, so that they will be able to complete their pledge before May 31, 2021, which is the final day of the Legacy 3 campaign. 
All of us at Saint Mark salute you who have given so much to these 3 campaigns that have remade our facilities and brought us into the 21st century. Thank you!
