4-H...We can win this !

September 07, 2007 - TRC

Hi all,

Angela Martin and I just returned from some foundation business at Bangor Savings Bank, and while we were there, we struck up a conversation with a bank employee / friend.

She had each of us fill out a form. This form is from the Bangor Savings Bank Foundation. It is a contest, of sorts, they are promoting, where the nonprofit that receives the most votes from the community will receive grant money from the bank.

Angela and I, of course, filled out the "other" option and wrote in the "4-H Foundation".

Now, given the fact that our non-profit is state-wide, and we have tons of volunteers, staff, etc - I think we have a good chance at winning if we have enough people who vote.

Encourage everyone you know to vote for the best write-in candidate : 4-H !!!
