Everyone following us on our website, our Facebook page, or the Facebook page of any of our board members are encouraged to send in a donation of any amount. Many small donations can make a difference. We need to turn our wonderful moral support into financial support. We have been getting grassroots donations, which we very much appreciate. We are looking at working with a fundraising consultant to help reach out to individual donors.
Starting September 1, the annual Give Aloha campaign at Foodland kicks off for the month. Anyone shopping at Foodland using your Maika`i card in September can add a donation for Friends of Falls of Clyde. Our non-profit number is 78512 or you can just mention our name. Remember that the donation is tax deductible.
Several board members worked on the ship this past Saturday to adjust lines for safety purposes. We are also planning to seal the poop deck with a special coating to keep out water from leaks. We recently put another coat of paint on the main deck to seal it and will be putting on another coat shortly. We have scheduled spot termite treatment for the Captain's salon to deal with the termite infestation in that area. Once done, we want to target the Captain's salon and cabin for our first major restoration project, which will then give us a showplace for people to visit.
