Dear Members and Friends.
2017 we will be 30 years old. We have lots of plans to honour and celebrate this milestone and to chart a renewed commitment to our work with schools and our community.
We will be visiting Jamaica in April 24-29, 2017 and we invite anyone able to come on the trip with us to think about doing so. Details will soon be forthcoming.
In 2017 we plan to:
* Increase our membership by 30%
* Add 30 new schools (or more) to our roster
* Add 300 new donors and supporters
* Offer 30 new teacher scholarships
And of course we need to raise funds to make these plans a reality. Serious funds. We ask you to dig deep and if you can add an additional $30.00 to your contribution as a one time contribution or monthly. All will be gratefully received.
It cannot be ever said enough…. Thank you to our P.A.C.E. Adopt-A-School sponsors who continue to make sure that they send in their pledges and honour their commitments to their adopted schools. Thanks to our members who know we need their funds not only to do the work of the organization but because they know it is important to be involved! We are asking you all, you who have supported us through the years to invite others to join us to make all these goals a reality.
Thanks to our Board members who take the time to do the work.
I look forward to seeing you at the annual Toy Drive in December and the Strawberry Social in June 2017.
So again, thank you all and know that we do make a difference in the lives of children—the most important work of all.
