Please view the photos and pray a special prayer for the 12 African-American fire fighters lost in the World Trade Center 911 Attack.
The material for this Celebration Package was based on reprinted information from an email sent by John Boozer (President of Black Diamond Summit, Inc.) which directs all BDS 1st Call Members to respond to the call for financial support to the Vulcan Society, Inc. FDNY, the Black professional fire fighters chapter of New York.
Twelve brave African American fire fighters
are among the missing or dead in New York.
A trust fund has been established by the Vulcan Society to aid the children
of its missing members and to build a memorial in front of the chapter's
office in New York. We know that many of you have generously contributed to
the call for relief help in the past two weeks. Now, we are asking you to
dig a little deeper in support of our own community.
Important: Please note "BDS 1st Call Member" on your check. When you book
your 2002 Diamonds of Distinction cruise stateroom, BDS will contribute an
amount equal to your contribution to the trust fund, up to $100. Additional
contributions from "The Cruise" and other BDS activities during the year
will support our Black Fire Fighters.
We know that if you can't mail a check on Tuesday, you will as soon as
financially able. Black Diamond Summit Tours is appealing to our 7,000+ 1st
Call members to join us in support of Black Fire Fighters in New York. BDS
will also appeal to our many supplier partners to contribute and we
encourage you to form efforts in support of the trust fund.
One more way to help: Please forward this message to others on your email list.
We thank you in advance for your support and generous contribution.
