This month, we're asking everyone in Point Roberts to drop into Sterling Bank or the library and donate $20 each for the new library. We'll match every $20 donation with a matching gift, and if 1,000 people do this, we'll have $40,000 at the end of the month. Everyone who donates will have his or her name recorded in the official donation book, so be sure to leave your name with your $20.
In the first few days, we have received $600, which doubles to $1,200. Thanks to Sharon Niles, Bunny Miekle and Alex Benekretis for being the first three donors at Sterling Bank! But we've got a ways to go to get 1,000 donors and only 26 more days to do it. We'll let you know how our residents are doing, but the numbers will be better if everyone donates. It's a small amount for a big gift. It's OUR library so we all need to support it.
