From Our Paymaster, Jim Duffy
At the end of each year most of the monies raised by the CWRT of Eastern PA are earmarked for preservation. This year was no exception. Here is how the money was allocated:
- $1000.00 was sent to save 3 VA stations (Bristoe, Trevilian, and Reams Stations - $76.26 to $1 ratio - our $1000 garnered $76,260);
- We also sent $1000.00 to Save Gettysburg (2 acres on the 1st Day's Battlefield - $10 to $1 ratio - our $1000 generated $10,000 of support.
- In addition, we also provided $1000.00 for 3 properties at Appomattox Court House ($1.80 to $1 ratio - our $1000.00 donation generated an $1800.00) and finally Slaughter Pen Farm at Fredericksburg ($1 to $1 ratio) and our $1000 provided a $1000.00 contribution.
- Thus our $4000.00 contribution, ultimately, was transformed into $89,060.00. Thanks so much to all of you who helped to make this gift possible.
