When it comes to generos- ity, I would put the people of Perkins up against pretty much anybody. Case in point: we just blew the top off our United Way ther- mometer by raising fnore than $56,000. When the Board of Direc- tors for the Srillwater Area UnflTod Way announced a 20t3 goal of $875,000 with a Perkins campaign z goal of $46,000, I have to admit I was nervous. Our 2012 total in Perkins was $44,000 -- which I consid- ered:'absolutely amazing! I just wasn't sure how we were going to top it this year. Oh me of little faith. Some notable sources of income for this year's campaign include the Pistol Pete 5K and Fun Run which raised $4723. Children's activities such as coin drives at Perkins- Tryon Schools raised $1778. The silent auction hosted at Payne County Bank raised $2150. This year's campaign also had several individual large donors--some choosing to remain anonymous. As in the past, the employ- ees of Payne County Bank were a driving force behind the success of this year's campaign. In addition to the silent auction, events such as-cinnamon roll sales, cili cook-off, and casual Fridays raised significant funds. The employees themselves-- many through monthly payroll deduc- tions--donated thousands of dollars to support United Way. I cannot say enough about two individuals associated with this year's Perkins campaign: Chris Petermann and Gene Wollenberg. Chris Petermann (Payne County Bank) is a member of the SUAW Board of Directors and served as this year's overall campaign Chair. I cannot imagine what kind of stress is associated with being charged with raising $875,000. Gene Wollenberg (Payne County Bank) served with me as the co-chair for the Perkins campaign. Let me tell you this...Gene Wol- lenberg has a huge heart for the United Way and his dedication to the 2014 CLINIC aennme; - ParU00 - Retries 321 N. Main in Peddns campaign is a big part of what made it such a huge success! Thank you Chris and Gene for what you do to make Perkins such a wonderful small town. Oh and by the way, Per- kins is not the only part of the campaign to make goal. The overall campaign for the Stillwater Area United Way did make the goal of $875,000 this year. Thanks to the generosity of people in Perkins and all across Payne County, organiza- tions such as Judith Karman Hospice, Wings of Hope, The Salvation Army, Big Brothers lig Sisters, Amer- ican Redmss, Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts and many more will receive financial assis- tance they so desperately need...tt our citizens desperately need.
