Photograph of the Donated Trumpet and Flutes By a Romanian Man
Dear Fellow Old Boys:
Let me first thank Pastor Femi Morgan for his remarkable efforts in packing and rearranging all the books and two printers worth of thousands of dollars donated by SCARCE in Chicago for pickup to Birch Freeman High School (BFHS) in Lagos, en route Atlanta.
This past week, Pastor Morgan arranged a pickup for the donated books and other educational materials from SCARCE to be transported from Chicago to Atlanta for final transportation to Lagos. When the driver, an immigrant from Romania, came to get the books, Pastor Morgan explained the NA chapter's goals and visions for BFHS to him. The driver was moved by NA chapter's visions and promised to donate some musical instruments to the same cause. But to our surprise, when the items arrived, they were more than what was originally promised. The wonderful Romanian immigrant donated to BFHS' choir - brand new expensive golden trumpet and flutes.
My dear fellow old boys, this kind of generosity is a challenge to all of us. We are still in the season of thanksgiving and giving back. Please get committed, check your garage for your old musical instruments and (educational magazines) that are not being used again, but collecting dust: We can make good use of them.
Also, we are still collecting donations for the new auditorium so that we can be part of history. For more details on donations, please call me (Niyi Fagbamiye, NA President) at 770-356-5477 or the financial secretary Toye Akinsanya at 678-525-3178
