    Dear fellow TW members,

    Thank you!

    I'm blown away with the response we had with getting our project funded so quickly. It speaks to how highly Perry was regarded in our community. I wanted to give you a breakdown of the project funds and give you an idea of how we will proceed.

    In 3 days, with 15 donors, we have raised $560. Our orginal goal was $500 so we are blessed to have a little extra in funds. GoFundMe take 5% and their bank takes 2.9% and $0.30 per transaction. That equals $48.74 in fees so those last few donations help make sure that we have everything truly funded and gives us $511.26 to complete our mission.

    I will notify our contact at the U.S. Space and Rocket Center Educational Foundation that we have reached our goal and we are ready to proceed.

    If you are a member who contributed please send me a PM or e-mail ([email protected]) and I'll add you to our recognition group.

    Just wanted to let everyone know that the weather station has been ordered and is slated for delivery next week. Still working out the installation site and mounting hardware but hope to have that completed later this week.
