For those readers who remember 2013-2014, it was a tough time running the Vanguard. In December 2013, our longtime website crashed and died. We ended up having to hire a new company to build it from scratch. But while we built a new site – at a huge cost – the site that replaced it was attacked immediately by bots and it too went down a few months later.
We had a website that was down twice for about 10 days a piece. Not a happy time.
In the fall of 2014, we hired Uptown Studios and lunched the current website in September 2014 and we have not a problem since. But now it is time to update the current website. This is not a full rebuild, but rather a re-design and it will modernize and optimize the site.
Still the cost won’t be cheap – about $4000. So for our fundraiser this year, we will be financing the new site – and maybe get us a few extra doctors to help pay our normal and ongoing costs.
As usual – you can help with a $5, $10, $25, $50, $100, $1000 or $5000 contribution. Whatever you can afford or would like to give, we appreciate.

Thanks so much for your support.
To date we have raised more than $2790 of the $4000 after the second week of the fund drive. We have $1210 to raise still.
