Sales: For those still hesitant about asking for pledges I draw to your attention the new information sheet distributed today. It summarizes who we are and what we do, making the "Ask" simpler. Additional copies are available. Success: Todate we have collected $25,000. in pledges. These pledges are now being turned in. Personally I have collected and submitted 50% of my goal. It is important to collect and submit your pledges now as the club needs the funds now in order to fulfill its promises to our youth and community. Yours in service, Chair, Kathleen Holst
