Employees can contribute to remembrance fund

Extension Remembrance Fund is provides contributions to memorial funds and cards to bereaved Extension families. A contribution to a memorial fund and a card are sent in case of the death of an employee, employee's spouse, child or parent. A card is sent in case of the death of a sibling or in-law. The fund is maintained by voluntary contributions, on a call basis, from both EPA and SPA employees of the North Carolina Cooperative Extension Service.

Our last call for contributions was in January 2005, and we were honored to send 47 memorial contributions totaling $1,175 in calendar year 2005. Now the fund is almost exhausted. Please consider making a contribution. The suggested contribution per person is $2; however, any amount would be appreciated. Checks should be made payable to: The State Extension Remembrance Fund, and forwarded to:

Tom Mease
Box 7602 NCSU
Raleigh, NC 27695-7602

Notification of a death should be directed to Suzanne Tal in our office at suzanne_tal@ncsu.edu, and she will notify our employees via the Announce email alias.
