Permit No. 1 PAUL SMITHS, NEW YORK ALUMNI $10,000 CAMPAIGN NEARS $1,000 MARK The campaign to raise $10,000.00 for the Alumni Association in twelve months starting May 31, 1969, is underway. So far, of the twenty-two graduating classes, contributions have been made by sixteen classes. The number con­ tributing from individual classes range from one to four. The goal of $10,000 was set for this year because we felt that with the membership we now have this should be an easy target. After we have enjoyed the satisfaction of this success, we will move ahead. Another reason for this amount is that it will provide for the com­ pletion of the Alumni Park project according to present plans. To proceed with our expressed purpose of service to the college, it will be necessary to “ THINK BIG.” The Alumni Association should and must provide its own cost of operation. $10,000 per year is too small for this purpose alone. A large percentage of alumni par­ ticipating in a reasonable way will do the job. Size of donations range from $5.00 to $100.00 The campaign is now one month old. So keep the contributions coming. Below is a list of the size of contributions followed by a list of donors and the classes of each.
