McClure-West Beaver fund drive tops its goal

To the editor:

The McClure-West Beaver community fund met on Nov. 5 for the purpose of dispensing fund receipts for the drive held throughout October 2013.

The meeting was called to order by committee chairperson Janet Will. According to the treasurer’s report a total of $12,874.00 was received from area residents and businesses, which is in excess of the $10,000 goal.

Seven agencies are listed to benefit from the drive as follows: Bannerville Fire Co.; McClure Fire Co.; Veterans Memorial Pool; QRS; Community Library; McClure Little League; and the Boy Scouts.

Residents and businesses of the solicitation areas are to be commended for their splendid financial support of the drive.

A special thanks is also extended to the volunteers who gave much towards the success of this community undertaking.

The results of the drive clearly demonstrate that communities working together as one can reach the goals that are set.
