With a vision to the long term, create an MGS endowment investment fund whose purpose is to provide annual income to support recurring MGS yearly expenses. This can start small and be scaled up over time, for example, it could start as a fund to support the expense of running the summer and fall picnic each year, and once that goal was achieved, grow again to support a new routine expense.

When is the last time the MGS hosted an event in Southern MD?
