Dear readers:

You helped us raise $72,000 – a record from readers for our Summer Camp Fund. All of your donations will be used to give children camp experiences next summer, opportunities their families can’t afford. I appreciate the efforts of Panthers owner Jerry Richardson, who served this year as honorary fund chairman. He accepted this challenge partly because of how camp experiences shaped him. Thank you again for extending your hearts and hard-earned dollars. Your generosity will enrich young lives.

Ann Caulkins, publisher
