“The greatest gifts you can give your children are the roots of responsibility and the wings of independence.” by Denis Waitley
Thanks to all who commented last week on my very short Post. It is wonderful to have “Friends” who appreciate and understand when some detours are needed to get to where you have to be. Although I am still extremely busy, the pathway to get all things done is much clearer.
Today, I am officially announcing the three-week fundraising campaign for the “Pathway Project for 2018”. For many “Friends” this will be the first invitation to help
support this project. During the previous two years, only selected Emory & Henry College affiliates were asked to support this one a kind project. It was my decision to limit donors to E&H folks because I simply wanted E&H College to be the first primary supporters of a project that would highlight the special place our college is. The recent E&H College Alumni story points out this special place and special people. Then, at times, non-E&H College members expressed disappointment in being excluded. Now, everyone and anyone can share in this one of a kind venture. Here are the details:
Pathway Project for 2018
The Goal $6,500.00 Actual Income=$850.00 Deadline: May 25th, 2018
The project will provide transportation for two Copey Learning Center students and two adult chaperones traveling from Costa Rica to Washington, DC on June 9th. Then, on June 11th, the guests will travel to E&H College for an approximate two-week stay which will include attendance at the annual Young Scholars and Leadership Program held on campus. Nearly two-thirds of the funds will be applied to airline travel expenses. Over the next few weeks, more specific information will be provided.
I invite “Friends” to join in from all over and support this outstanding partnership effort being undertaken by E&H College, the Learning Center and the Copey community, Kiwanis of Tri-City Industry in Washington state, and of course “Friends of Copey”. Below are the guidelines to follow for making a donation in support of this project.:
Make check to TCI-Kiwanis Foundation and include in memo section: “Pathway Proj. FOC”. Then please mail the check to the address below not later than May 25th, 2018.
And, please do not make the check to “Friends of Copey” or to me personally. All funds will go into the TCI Kiwanis Foundation account to pay the expenses. The account will be managed by the Foundation’s Treasurer, Ms. Julie Meek, CPA. The Foundation has 501c3 status. Thanks in Advance
There are a variety of activities underway including some pen pal letters from one or two elementary schools and a skype session planned for students in Copey and Richland, Washington, Also, another fantastic “Welcome the Pathway Project 2018 Guests” reception is planned and scheduled for June 15th. If interested, please let me know so you can be placed on the guest list.
Other news but no time to share. Just keep reading the Posts and stay informed. This is as much about you as anything.
Thanks for being a “Friend”
