Action expresses priorities

December 22, 2008

Thank you to the Fort Atkinson Community Foundation board of directors.  On behalf of the Dwight Foster Public Library board of trustees and its staff, we want you to know how grateful we are for your decision to contribute the lead gift of $1.5 million dollars to the library’s capital campaign.

During this time, especially, we know the meaning of your gift.  We understand the magnitude of your commitment and are appreciative beyond words.

A favorite quote of mine is from Mohandas (Mahatma) Gandhi:  “Action expresses priorities.”   With your donation, you’ve continued your long tradition of making the Fort Atkinson community your priority.  Investing in our library is a tangible way to reach into the future with a priceless present.  It’s a gift that will bear fruit well beyond any of our own lifetimes.

Thank you.

In my search for a way to say thanks electronically, I found the following video on YouTube.   Through song and images, perhaps this will convey a proper sense of gratitude. 

(Note: On 9.1.09 I changed to video link because the original video was removed due to copyright issues.  This is a “cover” of the Josh Groban song.)
