Anchor subscription drive kicks off in this edition


FALL RIVER, Mass. — Anchor readers will notice that there is a subscription envelope insert included with this week’s edition.

As was mentioned in a front-page story in last week’s edition, because of the upcoming parish assessments beginning Jan. 1, 2016, The Anchor will no longer be subsidized by diocesan parishes. While this will put a strain on Anchor resources, the publication is appealing directly to subscribers, instead of going through diocesan parishes.

Current Anchor subscribers are encouraged to renew their subscriptions with this envelope insert. By doing so, their current subscription will continue when it is scheduled to lapse. That would be a different  date for various subscribers, depending on when the subscriptions initially began.

There is a section on the insert for new subscribers to begin receiving The Anchor at their residences, and there is also an option for individuals to submit a tax-deductible contribution to keep the 58-year publication in production.

You can also make a donation to support The Anchor by clicking on the GoFundMe box to the right.

As was also mentioned in last week’s Anchor article, The Anchor, as of Jan. 8, 2016 will become a bi-weekly publication. With the change, The Anchor plans on carrying a much larger local content, concentrating on diocesan events, news stories and features. The paper will also continue to bring readers its fine lineup of local columnists.

The Anchor encourages all subscribers to renew their subscriptions, and to encourage others to become a member of The Anchor family by subscribing for the first time.
