Updates on ‘Further Request for Help’
The response to my “Further Request for Help” accompanying the 4th Report was quite good. I have been unable (or, more correctly, have neglected) to send personal thanks to all of the persons who have made, or are continuing to make contributions to my project, and until such time as I thank each of you personally, I hope that my thanks may be acceptable in this form.
I would like to give special thanks to Laurie Ann Lepoff, a senior high school student from Sunnyvale, California who came to Ajoya for the first part of summer and tutored Martín in English to give him a head start when he came to the US.
I also give special thanks to Ann Wilsnack and Joe Bonner of the Woodside High School Student Council for their enthusiasm in organizing a benefit dance to raise money for the project (specifically for medical and educational uses) and to Marianne Moore and Chris Jones, two of the students from Pacific High School who have been to the villages with me, for helping prepare the photographic exhibit and presenting the slide show at Woodside in conjunction with the benefit. The show netted $207.14 for the furtherance of the project in the Sierra Madre.
