Event: CMC Non-Profit Celebration
Where: 433 South Main St.
When: Sunday, July 22, 11am-1pm

The Civic Media Center and Stetson Kennedy Library Inc. is now the holder of its own 501(c)3 nonprofit status, a year or so after going under the wing of the Neighbors United for a Better Alachua. We are grateful to them for assisting the CMC during this period.
Being volunteer-run, a few years ago the CMC was simply late in doing its filing of the IRS paperwork on a couple of occasions, and there was no knowledge that this was severely frowned upon by the powers that be at Internal Revenue. Like, they simply take away your 501(c)3 status.
So now after some stewing and worry about what to do, some very helpful consultation from Three Rivers Legal Services gave us a path to get back in the good graces of the IRS. And we are as of June 2018.
So let’s celebrate with a brunch on Sunday, July 22, at 11am at the CMC!
We will have food and drink, but you are welcome to bring an offering.
This will be the last day the CMC is open for two weeks, allowing our coordinators time for a vacation and a new coat of paint to go on the floor.
Come get or renew your membership, get some summer reading or viewing off our shelves, socialize in the cool AC with our fine supporters, and check out our new neighbors in 435 S. Main as well as the newly completed Fire Station next door.
Tax-deductible contributions will of course be welcome. That is Sunday, July 22, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at 433 S. Main Street in Gainesville. D
