From the Treasurer

We are now in a new Fiscal Year! It is crucial to the financial well-being and sustainability of our community that each of us commits to a designated amount the TEMV community can rely on, this year more than ever. Please consider what the right amount of financial support is for you and your family, and indicate it on the Pledge Form. Your contribution is kept confidential.

Please return the form by June 1 so we can better plan the year and anticipate our revenue. Don’t hesitate to reach out to me with questions or concerns.
