As merchants arx! office managers tally daily receipts in coming weeks, they may be sering yellow.
Seeking to demonstrate how senior citizens influence the community’s economy, members of the Comal County Senior Citizens’ Foundation will he distributing yellow "coupons” identifying their share of trade.
"This is one way of showing the merchants and the professional people just the amount of business you receive from senior citizens,” said Gene Burr, a fund drive committee member The foundation is raising funds for the renovation of a new Seniors’ Center of C omal County on the site of an abandoned shopping center and health club at 655 f anda Street
Jere Dial, a volunteer fund raiser, recalled a major industry in a small Texas city paying all its workers in two rlollar hills
"As those two dollar hills stacked up in cash registers all over town,” he said, "it became obvious just what effect that company hart on that city’s economy."
Since senifrrs flon’t share a payday, the group formulated the coupon which reads;
“Your business experience I am sure tells you that 59 percent of the taxes paid arid grinds and servw e,s pur chased in New Braunfels and f omal County are made by ‘senior citizens
“I am making purchases of goods or services from you I hope this will encourage you to financially support the renovation of the new Senior Citizens Center' at 655 I-anda Street.
It is printed on bright yellow papcr for visibility and provides a space for the individual customer to sign his name.
“We’d like U) see stores, restaurants, even dtxtors offices flooded with these things, ’ 'aid Doug Rowe, another volunteer fund-raiser
To fellow x(nuts he says, "Now you have a role You need to ae conscientious about awanting aixi asuig these slips.'
The coupons are asoiUote ai ux current Senior Citizen Ceiuei ai 42 Comal Ave. and will be distributed ai civ ic and sera ice clubs.
"Oi they can came by the new center to pick them up,' Burr void, ixxuig ti wu would give noel eased scum* ciu /ens a chance ta “see ptogic'As be mg nude ’ on renovation and to shop ii dx center s Thrift Shop, already a bosnx&:> at dx* tear of the building.
“We’re all new at dux we’re ah amateurs at fund raising," Rowe said.
“All funds raised arc nu Ucduu hie. and all the people out the ic uying to raise them are volunteers,” Burt mid, with SIX) percent of the money raised going directly to the renovation project Most of the money will be used for building materials because volunteer labor is used to the fullest extent in the project.
