ACTIVITIES, FUND RAISERS & NEWSLETTER FLYERS
Please return the stubs for the WPS Raffle as soon as possible, along with $2.00 for each to Widowed Persons Service of Tarrant County, 2906 SE Loop 820 Suite A, Fort Worth, Texas 76140-1030. You can also get additional tickets by contacting one of the WPS board members or by simply calling the WPS office at 817-551-2922. Please leave a message, and we will respond as quickly as possible. The easiest way to fill out the stubs is to use return address stickers you normally get in the mail and then just add your phone number. Included with each ticket is an offer for a free dinner when you buy any regularly priced dinner at Spring Creek Barbeque. Spring Creek Barbeque has provided the printed tickets to us at no charge every year that I have been a member of WPS. At the October General Meeting, there will be a drawing using the ticket stubs that have been returned and prizes will be awarded. The prizes will be as follows: 1st prize - a video security system; 2nd prize - a Ring video doorbell; plus many donated prizes.
A combined Ad and Personal WPS Directory input sheet is included as a flyer attachment to this newsletter so that we can generate the 2021 WPS Directory. The top part of the flyer is for member entries, and the bottom section is for advertisement entries. This is a great way to keep in touch or reconnect with your WPS friends, many of whom you may not have seen for many months. The directory income satisfies many of the expenses that are necessary to keep WPS going. Please have your name included in this year’s directory. See the attached flyer. I have also asked Tom Myler to email all members separate Directory and Advertisements input sheets that you can use to solicit advertisements for the directory.
A reminder that North Texas Giving Day is Thursday, September 17 this year. This year will be our third year to participate. Last year we raised over $1,000 in needed funds through the generosity of our members. Please consider donating again this year and help us reach our goal of $1,250. Details are in the attached flyer.
Thank you for the donations and memorial gifts to Widowed Persons Service of Tarrant County. Because of the increased participation we have been able to meet all our monthly bills. Please continue to make donations or memorial gifts to Widowed Persons Service of Tarrant County.
I have not received any locations volunteered where we can have a monthly sale. We will try that fundraiser again after COVID-19 is under control.
