08/17/2009: "Thanks For Helping Kunya"


Thanks to the island community for your support of our recent quilt raffle to benefit Clean Water for Kunya. The winner of the quilt is Midge Paterson, of Friday Harbor.

The greater islands community, including many visitors, bought nearly 1,500 tickets, for a total of $1,327.

Special thanks to Krispi Staude and her helpers in the Textiles Department at the County Fair, who invited us to display the quilt and sell tickets there; John Stimson and his crew at Marketplace; Wes Corey and his crew at King's; and Sandra Tribotti, from Seattle, who made the quilt and donated it to us.

We wish that we had had prizes enough that everyone who bought a ticket could have won, but as one of our ticket buyers said, "The real winners are the ones who will get clean water."

(Those who want more information about Friends of Kunya: visit our website http://www.friendsofkunya.org/)

Thanks again. This community has supported Clean Water for Kunya eagerly and generously; we appreciate you all.

Sincerely,
Joanruth Baumann and Dick Coffey
