Open apology to readers
By Linda Gilson

I am writing in response to the thank you letter of FCCC. Some clarification of numbers raised is needed. Unfortunately in my haste to recognize once again the generous donations this winter by different groups to FCCC, I sent in to the secretary the amounts off the top of my head and have received phone calls regarding this.

I apologize to Judy Zenge of the Plaza Mall and others if the amounts were a bit off, due to emails versus actual accounting from the treasurer when checks came to FCCC.

A Few Good Men raised over $20,000 with another earlier donation from them in December of $3000. The Plaza Mall has been very supportive of the FCCC mission and in recognizing their contribution I made an error in totals. I was trying to give a picture to the community of the generosity of different groups this past winter to FCCC in helping our neighbors with cancer.
