Darlington Hits the News Again as Fundraising Thermometer Is Unveiled Outside Schoolhouse


Campaign volunteers Irene Auleta, Pat McGlade, and Bob Ross, along with TC staff members Don Weise and Jennis Watson, unveiled the Bolger Challenge Thermometer outside the schoolhouse yesterday.

Outside the Darlington Schoolhouse yesterday, our campaign team volunteers gathered to unveil the Bolger Challenge Thermometer!  The new, eye-catching sign lets passersby know about the project and how much we still need to raise to reach our goal.  Currently, the Trail Conference has raised $855,000 of the $1 million needed to meet Bolger Foundation’s Nov. 1, all-or-nothing challenge deadline.  If we are successful, the Foundation will make a gift of $500,000, which will allow us start construction right away!
