Each year Nazareth asks the anniversary
classes to make a special effort to make a class gift.

rightly impressed with the spirit and generosity of the Class of '66.
If you did not get an online confirmation of your gift:
Kate Driscoll writes 9/14:
The "small" window of time during which the on-line donation system
at Nazareth was NOT working turns out to be at least a month. If
you've made an ON-LINE donation during the last six weeks, PLEASE contact Lynn
Mulvey, (firstname.lastname@example.org, or
585.389.2414) to confirm that your donation "took". The
numbers they have on our class giving are , to say the least, skewed.
as Camille put it:
phychologist name Erik Erickson writes about the stages of life and how, as we
approach the end (and letís not kid ourselves, we are not Ďmiddle aged)
itís a good thing to experience what he calls ďgenerativityĒ, wanting to
look to the generations who will come after us and help may the way smoother
impossible to put a dollar value on what Nazareth has meant to me but by
contributing something I like to think that Iím helping to give
someone else the friends and memories of a lifetime. So, you see YOU
GUYS are the reasons I donate. The beat goes on and Iím in the band.
HERE to go to the Nazareth site to make a donation to the Class Gift.
- If you haven't donated in the past, think about it for this year. Each
gifts counts, no matter how small.
- If you donated last year but just haven't gotten to it this year, PLEASE
do so before Sept. 21.
- If you have already donated this year you can make an "early"
donation for next year (any time after July 1 but before Sept 21) and it
will still count as a part of reunion giving. And you will be
thanked in two separate annual reports over two different fiscal years.
- Remember the matching gift option at some companies. With many of us
retiring it this may be the last time you can get matching funds to
stretch your gift.
- Buy chances on the Quilt that Bunny and Karen
are making. Save up your pin money and buy tickets at the get together
Friday night. They are donating all of their time, materials and all your
chance money to OUR Class Gift.
