We are trying a few new things this year. We will be hosting a round table discussion once a month for all explorers that would like to attend. This is a voluntary time and will be held prior to regular scheduled meeting. We will be meeting April 26th, 2017 at 6:00 pm at the FDC. Each month we will have different topics to discuss. Thank you again for all of your support to the Explorer program.

King Soopers Neighborhood Reward Program - Update

on Mon, 04/03/2017 - 15:45

For the period 19 February to 18 March 2017, deposits were made to 21 cards totaling $4,803.00. The usage was about half the number of cards used last month. However, while the number of cards used was down, the amount deposited was wonderful. For this one month period, deposits in the amount of $4,614.01 were made. For the period of October 2016 thru March 2017, we have accumulated total deposits of $18,164.14. If we can continue at this pace, we will accumulate about $60,000 toward our $70,000 goal for the 2017 Awards Banquet. Remember that, if we can get about $70,000 in deposits prior to November, we can entirely fund the 2017 banquet without charging anyone for tickets! We have recorded deposits of about 26% toward that goal at this point. This is certainly a goal that is achievable if everyone uses their card to purchase groceries and fuel.

If anyone has questions regarding how this program works, please call either Marjorie or me and we will explain just how easy it is.

Great job everyone!!!!!

King Soopers Fundraier Update

For the period 22 January to 18 February 2017, deposits were made to 45 (that is not a misprint - really there were 45 cards used!) cards totaling $4,803.00. The usage was about triple the number of cards used last month. During this reporting period, we exceeded the cumulative $5,000 deposit threshold, and receive a check for $354.40. For the period of October 2016 thru February 2017, we have accumulated total deposits of $13,550.33. This is a good foundation for the 2017 Awards Banquet. Remember that, if we can get about $70,000 in deposits prior to November, we can entirely fund the 2017 banquet without charging anyone for tickets! We have recorded deposits of about 20% toward that goal at this point. This is certainly a goal that is achievable if everyone uses their card to purchase groceries and fuel.
