Second Annual Appeal Making GREAT Progress!
The Second Annual Appeal for financial contributions and volunteers is producing some exciting results. As of December 26th, 157 current members have renewed their membership and 69 new members have joined for 2017 totalling 225 households and $17,725 in contributions. With just one month to go to reach our goal of $22,000 from this appeal, reaching the 80% mark is encouraging and very much appreciated.
New member, Dave Christmas, says... “I have been coming to Brewster since I was a kid. My parents and I camped at Shady Knoll. Now, I spend one week a year in Brewster, because I am busy with my job. But, when I go, I fish; go to the beach; go to Nickerson. I love the ponds. I am getting near retirement age and I plan to spend the summers in Brewster. I found out about your organization and thought it's kind of neat. There are so many ponds in Brewster. Brewster is perfect; the town has everything I want and I want to be there."
