Dear friends

First of all we would like to bid you all a fond hello and sincerely hope that each and everyone is doing well. While it was unfortunate that such tragic circumstances brought us together, we also remember that we were given the opportunity to meet and be in the company of some truly wonderful people who enriched our lives and made us all better individuals.

Our Members are in the process of organizing a major fund raiser, to enable us to purchase a much needed Fire Truck and Rescue Truck for our Department and Community. These two major pieces of equipment are fundamental when responding to a fire. The cost of these purchases will be in excess of $ 120,000.00 Canadian dollars. We hope to achieve this goal by the year 2008 as our existing Fire Truck will be deemed obsolete by that time and replacement will be a requirement and our existing Equipment Truck is not reliable at this point. While we deeply regret having to reach out to you in this way, at this time, our means to raise funds of this amount, have left us no choice but to explore all avenues that will help us reach our goal. We want you to be assured that we are seeking no obligation from you but if you can help us it would be greatly appreciated. If you have any questions or wish to inquire, please feel free to contact us at the following All inquiries will be promptly answered.

Again we sincerely apologize for having to approach you regarding this request because we feel you have already given us more than we could possible ask for. The opportunity to be able to pull together as a community and work in unity. For that we are truly grateful and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Thank you and fondest Regards
