Despite not having a Light-a-Light issue of The Advocate newspaper to mail out to thousands of our alumni members across the country, the 35th annual Light-a-Light campaign ended up being our most successful campaign ever. Using a totally electronic campaign using our e-newsletters and our Facebook page was a very new experience for us, but the response from our alums across the United States and Canada was heart warming. We surpassed our goal of $25,000 by raising $26,862 from 553 donors. Therefore, for 2020 we have established a goal of $30,000. We appreciate any support that you can give us. On Friday, November 27, 2020 the lights on our beautiful Colorado Spruce Tree on the west lawn of the high school will be illuminated.
We are asking ALL of our alums and friends of F.H.S. to help us by donating in one of two ways:
(1) by mailing a check made out to "FHS Alumni" to:
FHS Alumni Association
PO Box 6
Fairhaven, MA 02719 or
(2) by using PayPal or Zelle to make a a donation through this web link: http://fairhavenalumni.org/lig...
We are also asking classes or individuals to share this information on their own Facebook pages, and generally spread the word about this year's Light-a-Light campaign. We will be making weekly posts on our Fairhaven High School Alumni Facebook page to highlight the projects that the FHS Alumni Association has been able to fund using the donations from the annual Light-a-Light fundraisers.
Any help you can give us would be deeply appreciated. For example, if you could forward this e-newsletter to any alums that you think might not be receiving them, that would be particularly helpful.
