RE:  Stockert Youth & Community Center  

Dear Caressa:

Thank you so very much for your beyond generous $1,700 gift supporting the capital campaign to realize our new multi-use building at the Stockert Youth & Community Center.  If more folks would step up to the plate as you have done, we could break ground very soon on this much needed and exciting project. You are a charter member of our Thousand Dollar Club, and I assure you- one way or another in the near future, this wonderful facility will come to fruition.  As soon as we have you added to the Tree of Giving in the foyer at SYCC, I will invite you over to check it out!

As we edge closer to our ground-breaking, I will be in touch with you as we most assuredly would like your presence at this celebratory event.  If I can ever be of service to you, Caressa, please don’t hesitate to call City Hall at (304) 472-1651. Again, on behalf of everyone associated with our City and Stockert facility, thanks so very much!

. Very truly yours,

David W. McCauley, Mayor
