Strong finish in 2011
I’m delighted to let you all know that we met and surpassed our goal for end-of-year giving to the annual appeal! Your generous donations, along with the Board’s matching challenge in May, successful fundraising for Scholarships & Special projects at camp this summer, and a surge in membership in the last quarter of the year gave CDSS a strong finish in 2011.
Full steam ahead for 2012
We are off and running in 2012! Steve has just posted the latest camp information for 2012 on the web and registrations are coming in; Jeff has reopened the store with lots of new inventory; Pat and Nils are madly editing another collection of singing squares; Caroline has sent the Members Directory to the printer (for those who wanted a copy) and is working on the camp brochure; Linda is reviewing more than a dozen grant applications that came in before the January 1 deadline; Mary will soon be heading to Tapestry Folkdance Residency as a co-consultant, with Ethan Hazzard-Watkins, to their youth outreach campaign; and the Search Committee of the Board is preparing to interview candidates for the Executive Director position.
It’s going to be a GREAT year. With your help, we will continue to reach further! Many thanks, dear friends, for your continuing support.
