The NETC Branch 50th Birthday Celebration continues with Birthday Presents!

from Donna Baumgartner, Branch Historian

A birthday party is so much fun! And even more fun when you get presents!

A donation to the Georgia Kidwell Remembrance Fund is the perfect birthday gift for our 50th Branch Birthday Celebration Year!  

A fundraiser for scholarships our branch used in the ’70s was created by Branch President Betty Fuller.  She encouraged branch members to make a donation in an amount equal to the number they would get if they added the numbers of their phone number and multiplied the total by 10 cents.  
To celebrate our 50th Anniversary and carry on this tradition, I suggest you add the numbers of your phone number and multiply the total by 50 cents!  

However, math is not required, and any amount donated to the Georgia
Kidwell Remembrance Fund
will be greatly appreciated! 

Thank you!
