Successful Sustain Campaign Ends in the Black (berry, that is)


by Tara Thurber

To all of you who have now signed up to become a member and/or supporting member of CJMP, thank-you for supporting community radio in the Powell River area! In a couple of days the final numbers should be ready but at this point it looks like we achieved our Sustain Campaign goal of attaining 50 Sustaining Memberships!

We hope to find new ways to utilize that funding in more creative, useful and valuable ways so that your support goes further and we become more productive as we develop and refine our systems of facilitating volunteer energies, skills and talents towards creating independent, intelligent, and representative media for our area and beyond!

To all of you who come in to CJMP every week and contribute countless hours of your time, energy and resources to producing quality content for our listeners, thank-you, without you, CJMP wouldn’t exist at all!


To all of you who showed up for Blackberry Fest yesterday, rain clouds looming, and helped us put up what looked like the most detailed, creative and truly intentional space at the festival with the Photo Booth, Mask-making table, CJMPortal and stellar music stage! Thank-you so much for following through and making that such a wonderful and memorable evening!summersustainCampaignweb_banner1.jpg
As we move into the fall we would like to plan some activities around developing and honing our skills at managing our volunteer base in more valuable ways and we want to know what more you could get out of your participation at CJMP so that we can do so! Enjoy the rest of summer 2014 and we will keep you posted on what we are planning for the next season shortly!

Again, thank-you everyone for making CJMP such a groovy and politically appropriate entity in this day and age, it is my extreme honour to be working with all of you!

We attained and surpassed our goal of 50 sustaining members!
