Ladies and gentlemen
Our Christmas drive for donations is well underway and as expected the generosity of Ramrods past and present is over whelming.
It's been decided that the Association will handle the purchase and shipping of the various items for those deployed. Time is of the essence if these are to reach the battalion prior to Christmas. So we are in the process of purchasing roughly $3,000 worth of sundries. And will get them in the mail, certainly before the end of the month.
The amount is being “underwritten” by one of our members. He will front the money and be reimbursed from the donations. With you help we expect to clear the $3,000 and be able to repay these costs in full. If we do not receive enough to cover the costs here our member has agreed to accept the amount we do receive in donations. If we exceed the amount spent it will be put in our treasury for future efforts in supporting the troops.
So we all, and that member in particular, would appreciate you getting your donations in.
If you are more comfortable supporting those deployed via the Family Readiness Group, or on your own that's fine. You don't have to go through the Association to support the battalion. But through us, the FRG, or on your own please consider our soldiers deployed this Christmas.
If you decide to make a donnation to our effort, please make the check out to
