Fair Association looks
By JOHN TACKETT News Ed Hor
The United Way of Comal County burst out of the chute Wednesday with a hefty increase over last year’s advance giving.
The figures were announced Wednesday at the kick-off of the campaign, which has a goal of $260,000 compared to last year's goal of $242,000.
Some 50 spirited volunteers and representatives of 28 agencies cheered when drive chairman Doug Miller announced at the meeting that advance giving this year has reached S33.096 compared to last year’s $24,842.
Another round of applause went up when Ski Haneiwich Comal County Veterans of Foreign Wars handed a check for SI ,500 to Pam Kraft, United Way president.
Haneiwich said the money was raised through the organization’s Bingo games.
Kraft said by the time the campaign cutoff date of Nov. 12 arrives, the goal should have been reached.
“Doug has this campaign so orga
nized we’re way ahead of the game,” Kraft said.
Appearing with Haneiwich were fellow VFW members were David Friesenhahn, Hano Hoffman and Bob Quem.
The meeting was held in the Senior Citizens Center. Adobe Cafe supplied snacks and Wholesale Beer provided the refreshments.
The crowd watched locally produced videos emphasizing this year’s theme, “People helping people.”
On the video, Kraft said the campaign is, “People helping people — from Greene to Bulverde, from Garden Ridge to Canyon Lake.”
The video also emphasized that 98 cent out of every dollar given locally stays in Comal County.
Mentions of the Canyon Lake Action Center and the Comal County Women’s Center, which last year housed 108 women and 135 children last year.
After the meeting, Kraft said, “People are more than willing to take their places as committee chairmen where they can do the most good. We’re geared up and we’re ready to go to
