Thank you City Council for donating the Ted Ferry Civic Center for the Katrina Hurricane Relief Effort Fund Raising Event. It is now scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 24 from 6 PM till 10 PM. This event will be the culmination of three weeks of intensive fund raising with the proceeds being split equally among Operation Blessing International, The Red Cross and The Salvation Army.

Thank you Susan, CEO of Tongass Federal Credit Union for collecting and dispursing funds at no costs. Please make checks out to "Katrina Relief Fund".

I want to thank in advance the many volunteers who will step forward and help Ketchikan open their hearts and pocketbooks in a giving effort that will exceed our expectations. Please search yourself and see if you can be on the front line of this effort over the next three weeks. We currently need chairs & co-chars for the following areas:

Food - Entertainment - Publicity - Ticket Sales - Collections - Ticket takers - Treasurer - Clean up - Sound systems and other?

Those of you willing to help, please email or phone me, Rob Holston @ 617-2262 - If you email me, I will reply with an attachment detailing the plan thus far. Thanks for your prayers and support.
