    I propose a card as part of orientation.&nbsp; Contents of the card would
    be something to the effect,&nbsp; "To help defray costs of electricity
    &amp; rent etc we ask that all non-members make a small donation
    into the donation box&nbsp; each time they use the space." <br>
    Just my 2 cents worth, larger than a lot of people's donations.<br>
