Fundraising efforts underway

Though its fundraising efforts are only recently underway, the United Way of Prince Edward County has already raised approximately $24,000. Members of the group’s all-volunteer board of directors gathered recently to celebrate by putting a second star on the board in front of Citizens Bank & Trust. The five stars will track the United Way’s success as it marches toward reaching its $60,000 2018-19 fiscal year fundraising goal. Pictured are, from left, Jamie C.
