Official Thistle Class Announcements:

GROWTH AND PROMOTION FUND
You still have a few weeks left to get in those end of the year tax deductions. Consider the Thistle Class Growth and Promotion Fund in your 2014 charitable gifts. 

The Growth and Promotion Fund has generated income for the purposes of promoting the class by making grants to junior sailors and community sailing events. Its impact will be  demonstrated by the following sample thought:

"Thank you TCA for the generous grant to me and my crew. Without your grant, our amazing trip to Mid- Winters may not have been possible. Thank you so much."

To donate, please reference G&P fund on the check, send to: Thistle Class Association, PO Box 741, Hatboro, PA  19040
