Many of you have come home to the blessed plot we call Philmont as Trekkers on the PSA Trek, or as participants at the annual Reunion. Others of you have experienced the programs of the Northern Tier and Florida Sea Base through the Exchange Program, and a few have earned their Triple Crown Award along the way. None of this would be possible without your Philmont Staff Association.
It takes money for the PSA to provide the support and infrastructure to make the Trek, the Reunion and our adventures at the Northern Tier and Sea Base possible. The bulk of that money comes from our Annual Fund.
To be frank, we are behind where we need to be with the Annual Fund. To get where we need to be, we need your help. Many of you have already given, some have not given. For those who have given, remember your great times at Philmont and consider kicking in more. I will do so myself. For those of who have not contributed, giving something, whether a little or a lot, is a great way to stake a claim in your PSA.
Your contribution will insure the continued vitality of your PSA in 2012 and we have great things planned in 2012: the PSA Trek, a Canoe Voyage and a Reunion – details to be announced soon – which will be a once in a lifetime opportunity. We all cherish Philmont and the PSA, so together let’s put the Annual Fund over the top!
