Good idea Karen. Contributions can be made to the Northfield Savings Bank, c/o Kim Pombar Trust. You can send them either to myself or to the Savings Bank at: Debbie Russo or Northfield Savings Bank Northfield Town Clerk's Office PO Box 347 51 South Main Street Northfield, VT 05663 Northfield, VT 05663 I have received calls and e-mails from a lot of you. I cannot tell you how much it means to Kim and to myself to see the support. Clerks are the best!!! We have raised $3000. as of this morning! (yippeeeee)!!! Thanks again Debbie ----- Original Message ----- From: Karen Horn To: [log in to unmask] Sent: Thursday, August 24, 2000 9:22 AM Subject: Re: Help! You might tell people where they could send contributions if they were so inclined. Also, sometimes an article in the paper, if she was willing, can generate assistance from unlikely sources.

This is a distress call for all clerks who might be able to help. My Assistant, Kim Pombar lost her husband this weekend at the age of 39. He did not have life insurance or anything. Funeral costs are $5,100. To top it off Kim is 2 months pregnant. Our staff has set up a trust for Kim to help her with expenses. We have called different organizations for help but need more ideas. If you have any ideas for places to call or even if the Clerks and Treasurers Association would help in anyway it would be greatly appreciated!!! I am sorry to send such a sad message to "ya all" but we are desperate. Thanks a bunch in advance for any help. Debbie Russo Northifeld Town Clerk/Treasurer P.S. CONGRATULATIONS TO THE CLERKS WHO GRADUATED FROM SALVE! YEE-HAW, YIPPEE, YAHOO!!!!!!! WE ARE SO PROUD OF YOU AND WISH WE COULD HAVE BEEN THERE!
