Kayleigh is in Park City, Utah and after scaling a 10,000 ft. mountain, she realized, "I'm wearing my CFSBK shirt and I'm really high up—I should try a pistol." Get it, girl! And come home to us soon!
Erik Kolb Update
Last week, we made the sad announcement that one of our members, Erik Kolb, died at the end of May. Many of you reached out and asked how you might be able to help, and Shawn S. did some research and discovered that Lafayette College (where Erik went to college) has a memorial scholarship set up in Erik’s name. Should you feel so inclined, there are three ways to donate:
1) Go to their online donation page and put Erik’s name into the "in memory of" section of the form.
2) Send a check payable to Lafayette College with "in memory of Erik Britton Kolb" in the memo field to: Development Office, Lafayette College, Box 3000 Easton, PA 18042
3) Call the development office at 610.330.5034 and give them your credit card information and specific fund instructions over the phone.
Lafayette will send the family notifications of any donations made. Thank you, Shawn!
