Congratulatory Letter

Dear John Hakala:

I am pleased to share with you that our Dinner and Silent Auction was a resounding success. We had 208 people attend the event and we raised over $8,800. I want to thank you for your donation of two granite cheese blocks because it played a big role in this fundraising event.

Throughout the year we help and support individuals and families in our community. The proceeds from the Silent Auction enable us to maintain our level of services to the community in the area of counseling, supports to seniors and pastoral care.

Thank you so much for your support.


Michael J. Maunula
Executive Director
