Elaine and I are only too happy to support the Franco-American Centre with a Life Membership at this challenging time for the FAC and many other charities.
For all we have given to the FAC in time, talent and treasure, we have received much in return. The friendships, the cultural experiences, and educational opportunities are beyond measure. We believe that charity begins at home. As Francos, the FAC is our cultural home. This is why, though we get requests for support from many many other charities, we have decided to make this commitment to the FAC.
Our traditional fund raisers have gone by the wayside or have been severely curtailed during the pandemic. Most notable are NH PoutineFest, the Franco-American Auction and charitable gaming. Yet our expenses remain. They include insurance, office supplies, teachers’ pay, and the salaries of our executive director and office manager. The dedicated staff members are the glue that keeps us operating by coordinating classes, supporting event organization and ensuring our message is broadcast in the community.
$600 for a Life Membership may seem like a lot of money for some. That is very true. But for many among us, it is well within our means if we feel it is worthwhile. Elaine and I submit to you that it is worthwhile and ask that you join us and others in becoming Life Members.
