Just because the policy is not one we understand, or agree with, or we
can justify the need to do otherwise, doesn't mean we can disregard it
because we feel like it.
I just remember that in a Pow Wow course we were told that cash donations
were not to be given to units because the donation couldn't be used as a
Merchandize was ok but cash wasn't.
Check with the council what needs to be done!!!!
