CSOS thanks all those who contributed to the CFC funds
The Centerville School Orchestra Supporters were notified in April that we will be receiving funds from the Miami Valley Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) office. You may recall we sent out a notice to all orchestra parents when CSOS qualified for and was listed as a charity that could receive donations for the Fall 2012 campaign. That campaign wrapped up in November 2012 with a successful conclusion and CSOS was contacted in April and informed that we would receive $1,282.46 in donations! Many thanks to our parents who supported this effort! While we received several anonymous donations, we do want to acknowledge the generosity of Ms. Karen Hurley, Mr. David Moenter and Mr. Walt Spaulding. Again, many thanks for thinking of us and please consider supporting us again next year.
