Don’t forget the community efforts

When I read the article in the NTH Thursday concerning the activities related to the Historic Howard Warner School building, I was disappointed that no mention was made of the very successful fundraising activity being conducted by the “Chalk Level Community” led by Ms. Rebecca Gibson. 

Over the last two years, the citizens in the Chalk Level Community have raised over $35,000 in matching funds to support the new Boys and Girls Club, which will be housed in the facility. Equally important is the fact that this group continues to raise funds toward their goal of $50,000. 

Ms. Rebecca and the Chalk Level Community deserve a great deal of recognition and respect for their commitment to the Community and the Boys and Girls Club.
