We have, currently, 135 people who have contributed $20 each to the "Stand and Be Counted: $20 for the New Library" campaign. Great, but not great enough, so we've talked to the donor who is providing the matching gift, and he is willing to continue it throughout the summer. It's very good to have over $5,500 total from this effort over the past four weeks, but so much better to have a $40,000 total, which we would have from 1,000 such donation.
SO, if you haven't got yourself listed and with an "I Gave" button, the library and Sterling Bank are still the places to go. Help make those numbers rise and help show that you support this new library! We'll be at the Saturday Market beginning June 21, and you can get your buttons from us there, too. As well as "Piece of the library" Prayer Flags.
What are our current total donations with their attached matching funds? Just under $195,000. Someone out there with a spare $5,000 just to get that total evened out nicely? We're expecting our outdoor donation measuring device to be completed mid-June: you'll want to look for it in and on the front of the Julius Firehall.
