Mr. Tom Geiger, President
Tri State Scale Model Car Club
2 Princeton Place
Haxlet, NJ 07730

Gentlemen:

Thanks to the Tri State Scale Model Car Club for its incredibly generous 2002 donation to the International Model Car Builders' Museum in the amount of $1,500.  Your club's continuing support of the Museum through your Grow the Hobby Fund is more deeply appreciated than you can imagine. The long hours spent by Trustees – whether filing new donations, or writing or publishing the newsletter, or sending letters to hobbyists – are buoyed by the knowledge that the Tri-State Scale Model Car Club shares the vision of not only preserving the history of the hobby for the future, but also trying to promote the hobby for the future. The ability to pay the rent and cover other expenses is heartwarming. 

Your club's donation will be used to pay for three months rent. . 

Of course, we'll be making note of the Tri-State donation in the first 2002 issue of The Builder, out very soon, as well as on the web page. You will also be receiving a special certificate in the next month or so. 

Thanks again for your time and generosity. 

Cordially,

 

Mark S. Gustavson

Letter from the 2000 Donation

Gentlemen:

I am in receipt of your wonderfully generous 2000 donation of $1,000 for the benefit of the Museum. Your group's continuing support of the Museum is heartwarming and, frankly, evokes an emotional response on this end: it is a wonderful thing to know that the Tri-State club is supporting the Museum financially as we work late into many evenings to get the Museum's exhibits re-set after our move to new quarters.

Because of the generosity of other donors, I am pleased to tell you that your club's donation will be used to pay the rent for November and December of this year. Plainly, without your help, we'd be in trouble as this year comes to an end. I can't express, adequately, the significance of the monetary, and other, sponsorship afforded by your club over the many years. 

Of course, we'll be making note of the Tri-State donation in our next newsletter as well as on the web page. You will also be receiving a special certificate in the next month or so. 

Thanks again for your time and generosity. 

Cordially,
