The other day, this newsletter led with an appeal for donations to pay funeral and travel expenses for Wilber Pena, the El Salvadoran landscaper who drowned in Sesachacha Pond last Sunday. In order to expedite the process, the Methodist Church has paid these expenses in full. Now you can donate online to help the Church defray the expense – and it is tax deductible.
You can still send a check to the Methodist Church, P. O. Box 264, Nantucket MA 02554 – please write “For Wilber” on your envelope. Also please attend the benefit dinner at
El Rincon Salvadoreno, 17 Old South Rd. on Friday August 15, 2008 from 5:30 to 9:30 p.m. Contributions above the $12 dinner cost will go to repay the church.
