The 100 Club Website
As your 100 Club continues to grow, so does our goal of making communication with The 100 Club easier. Have you checked out The 100 Club website? The 100 Club website is a great tool that allows our members to renew their membership online, request decals, or just stay up to date on upcoming events within the organization. Also, for those of you trying to get your friends to join who might not be familiar with us, the website offers a lot of information ranging from the History of the Club, Membership Opportunities, Mission Statement and even FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions). The website also has a special page dedicated to those heroes that have been lost in the line of duty in our 14 county coverage area. Consider adding www.the100club.org as a closing link in emails you send to family, friends, co-workers, and/or clients. Not only can a 100 Club Decal show your support, but now in the age of technology, a simple link can help promote an organization that helps our heroes when they need us.

www.the100club.org Tha t’s NOT The 100 Club Calling You!
We get calls at The 100 Club office periodically letting us know our attempt to solicit funds over the telephone weren’t appreciated, or that the person who called was very rude. THAT IS NOT THE 100 CLUB CALLING! The 100 Club does not solicit funds over the telephone. In our fifty-three year history, we have never solicited via telephone, nor have we used telemarketers to solicit funds. Remember, other non-profits exist that support Law Enforcement and Firefighters, and they DO CALL, But The 100 Club does not. We know that some of you may contribute to other charities for our law enforcement and firefighting communities, we just want you to be aware that The 100 Club does not solicit via telephone. However, if you are like most of us and just don’t want to be bothered, you may want to ask them to take you off their telephone list. Please Remember, THE 100 CLUB WILL NOT CALL YOU TO SOLICIT FUNDS!!!!!

Pr esident’s Corner
100 Club President, Clarence F. Kendall, II
2006 will be a busy year for The 100 Club. Many of our Board Committees are busy at work looking at the organization and moving into discussions as to how we can better serve the law enforcement and firefighting communities. One of the many important questions that will be answered is, “Where do we want to be in five to seven years?” The Long Range Planning committee will be developing plans to carry the Club into the next decade with an emphasis on fulfilling the mission our founders began in 1953. Included in those discussions will be the size of the organization, both geographically and numerically, that allows us to provide our support to those brave Heroes who put their lives on the line every day. You can help The 100 Club by asking your friends and neighbors to join with us and become members. Contact the office at (713) 952-0100
