     Thank you all for a wonderful response to our CentreGIVES appeal - we used only two emails, with nothing spent on postcards or advertising, but you ALL came through with such generosity.   It was very gratifying to me that there were so many new givers, so we know our message of creating community and saving our history in Lemont is really working.

     Our total so far is over $4,000, with more to come with the "stretch" fund and other additions. Some of the money is from the Diane Moore Fund and is designated for the Pollinator Garden, as arranged by Jeff Bower.  The rest will go into the railroad building restoration with last year's CentreGIVES funds. The last to finish is the decking for the bridge at the end of the railroad building.  Again, our heartfelt thanks.  You should receive your tax statement via email from Centre GIVES.
