Explorers and Parents

on Wed, 04/10/2019 - 07:50

First and foremost we would like to thank all of those that attended the CSFD Explorer 2019 Awards Banquet. Captain Broch would like to extend his many thanks for attending our annual banquet , as he stated it was so great to see everyone! We would like to thank everyone for you wonderful donations to this years silent auction and the generous contributions to the silent auction. This would not of been such a success without all of you! The adult leaders would like to thank you the Explorers for the gifts that we were presented to us. We were surprised and overwhelmed with your thoughtfulness. It truly warmed our hearts!

An update from Mr. Essigmann about King Soopers:

Thank you to all the parents and post supporters who attended the Awards Banquet on the 14th. I think that it was by far the best one yet and I have been involved with them for the last 13 years!

I would like to point out a few of the financial highlights. While there may be some more expenses yet to be turned in, at this point it looks like our income has covered all our costs. In addition to the ticket sales, income from the King Sooper's Neighborhood Rewards program was about $2,200 (a record for the post!) and from the silent auction was about $1,900 (also a record!). This allowed us to subsidize your meal costs keeping your tickets down to a reasonable cost and allowed us to pay for all our explorers.

WOW! Great job everyone who have worked so hard on this event and have been involved throughout the year! Let's make next years event even better.

Martin F. (Marty) Essigmann, P.E.
