With these thoughts in mind, I humbly implore you, the residents of Thurman, to help us. Would you please make a pledge of whatever you feel you can afford, keeping in mind the $45 referred to above. If you can contribute more, we would be grateful; less would certainly be appreciated with the same gratitude. Remember, your donations are tax deductible.
If you wish to make a pledge, please call squad president Jean Coulard at 623-2602, or call the squad building at 623-9014. Leave your phone number and the amount of your pledge. A squad officer will call and arrange to pick up your donation, or be at the building to receive it.
We will set up a separate bank account strictly for both this fundraising and future events, as we will soon be depending solely on individual contributions, as well as revenues from billing — which will be kept separate. This separation of funds will allow us to report directly to our benefactors as to what they contribute and what it is spent on.
If you have neighbors that are part-time residents or out-of-own landlords, please inform them of our plight and pass on this request to them. We have found the non-resident landowners to be very generous in our annual donation request.
Thank you in advance for your generosity, concern, and support!
Jean Coulard, President
