We are sorry this year to see Thanksgiving arrive. This is not because we are NOT GRATEFUL AND OR THANKFUL but because we know we will be losing the consultant as our champion, go to person, friend and all around a wonder when it comes to campaign fund raising. St. Thomas’ is within only a few dollars of reaching its goal of Two Million (thats with an M) of the campaign. The campaign allocates One Million for brick and mortar and One Million for our Endowment fund, thus ensuring our Church is moving forward in service for God and our Covenant WITH God. All of this as we celebrate 125 years of faithfulness.
The true point of this email is we NEVER, NEVER could have accomplished our goal without your consultant. He encouraged us, lead us and was always dedicated to our cause. We are extremely thankful that you and your firm had the foresight to hire and recognize his strength. My husband and I (Peter Barker) owned and managed a small business for 32 years and good people are sometimes hard to find, much less keep them challenged. YOU are to be congratulated for having this consultant as a valuable employee and I think our Priest (Fr. Craig Uffman) and the Vestry are in line for congratulations for having the foresight to recognize that we could not have reached the point we are now in our Campaign without the consultant. We wish for you and your business a wonderful Holiday Season and good wishes for 2015.
