Subject: Please help the victims of Katrina
This was going to be a happy newsletter, full of good news about what's going on at the brewery, but the news this week coming out of our homestate of Mississippi makes it all seem insignificant. All of the poor people who have lost everything, all of the communities just wiped away - in the face of such destruction, you almost feel that there is nothing that anyone can do.
We're going to try to do what we can to help, and maybe with help from you we can make a small difference. Come down to the Yazoo taproom this Friday Sept. 2nd. Yazoo will be donating all of the proceeds from our taproom sales that night to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief fund. We will also welcome and forward any individual donations you or your company are willing to make.
