services to all, regardless of economic condition. More than $40,000 was raised, far surpassing the goal

of $30,000. Special thanks go to Lynne Jones and Margaret Usdansky, and their families, for their superb

leadership in bringing the campaign to a successful conclusion. Their good work and that of all of the
