Dear Community Members. On behalf of the campaign for a new medical center in Cannon Falls, we'd like to say "You did it"!
Many of you offered very generous support for the new medical center in Cannon Falls. Those gifts and pledges will enable us to fulfill our community's financial commitment to build a new medical facility in our town.
As Campaign Cabinet committee members, we knew we were tackling a daunting task when we started working quietly on the campaign in 2010. Our challenge was to raise $6,000,000 in our small community. Many told us the task was too large and that amount could not be raised. We could only hope the nay-sayers were wrong. And they were.
We are very proud of our community. Thank you for sharing our view that we needed a new health-care facility here in our town. Thank you for listening to us and being willing to dream of the future. Thank you for your patience and steadfastness. And, most of all, thank you for your generosity. Last Friday was the official groundbreaking for our new medical center. The dream of a new facility is now going to be a reality.
Recently a Mayo development officer with experience in many capital projects told us that our campaign here in Cannon Falls "restored his faith in community campaigns." Well done, Cannon Falls. You did it!
