I never thought I'd be so excited to get mail from the IRS.
Even though we were approved a month ago for all the basic paperwork to establish St. Lou Fringe as a formal non-profit organization in the State of Missouri, the actual receipt of a letter from Robin Carnahan with the Great Seal (complete with duelling bears) and a sparse letter typed in courrier from the IRS still give the giddies.
We are confident in our work, thrilled at the support we've been receiving from all sides. Seeing an actual paper trail forming, tangible documentation of our ideas and work going into action, are liberating.
And so, as we sup over cheese, obscure meats and microbrews, we grow closer to formal partnerships and final details.
And once those are hashed...yep, that's when the fun really begins.
