The burgee and the date

I showed the Admiral the burgee and she had a couple of comments that I'd like to pass along:

1) If the idea is to charge more than the actual cost as part of the fund raising, then having the date makes sense as you would want to sell a new one each year to everyone. Sort of a recurring revenue stream.

2) If that is not the idea and you are going to count on donations (and not burgee sales) to raise money, she thought you might want to say "Est. 2010". Particularly if you see this becoming an annual event.

Submitted for your consideration ...
