As Co-Chair of subject campaign I want express my gratitude to Klote & Associates and in particular to the campaign director for the project, for the guidance given to our congregation in the administration of the campaign. While I’m sure there were more than a few members who thought we didn’t need any outside assistance to run such an effort, the fact of the matter is we did. I’m sure we would not have implemented many of the ideas Klote utilized such as targeted pledge amounts, an every member visit and Kick-Off luncheon to name a few. The director’s contribution was to keep us focused and to not lose faith in ourselves in getting the job done. And in this regard he did an outstanding job. There were some down times with only a few making visits but thanks to the director’s encouragement the number of visitors has grown making our goal of $3.4 million a real possibility. Whether or not we reach that goal remains to be seen. But without the director’s diligence, and Klote’s plan, that figure would not even be in the conversation. Thank you for your participation in our Capital Campaign.
