Pardon my ignorance, but in the 10 years I've been an adult leader, both
CS and now as a SM, I have never heard of these United Way "Black Out"
Our DE's have never mentioned this and our District folks haven't either.
We've had fundraisers throughtout the year and no mention of withholding
them until these periods are over.
Could someone more in the know please enlighten me?
Thanks in advance!
