Shipmates, below is the updated list of donars (as of December 31, 2011) in no particular order (most recent first, though) who have donated to the Save The Building Fund. More names to follow as we still have a number of outstanding pledges and we sent out our annual fund raiser letter a little early this time. As mentioned in the letter, we will not be asking for funds for what is normally our biggest fundraiser of the year: FRAlics (April 13-15). 2012's FRAlics will be more of a THANK YOU party for three days (planning is on-going as I write this).

We now have a total of about $6,200.00 (combined PHP and $) which puts almost able to afford the repairs we have already completed. President Tom had the electrician over a couple days ago and we await his estimate. This electrician is associated with the contractor who completed the roof and structural repairs and we are pleased with his work. We expect $1000-1500 for the basic electrical repairs so we still expect the total to be in the $8,000 range. A major portion of the wiring in the building needs to be completely re-wired.
The Children's Christmas party went real well on December 18 (pictures to follow) and our annual visit to San Marcelino Public Hospital on Christmas Eve also went well (pictures and words to follow on this as well).
We had a very nice visit from Art Reimer from
A couple more shipmates have been added to our FRA 367 mail List since the last go 'round.
Hope everyone had a great Christmas and hope all have a terrific New Year.
Until next time, . . . .
