“On behalf of the Beaver Falls Fire Department, PA, I want to thank you for all of your assistance over the past year. As you know, with your help, we were successful at obtaining a 2017 AFG grant for fire hose. I feel very confident that we will be successful with this grant also. I appreciate you taking the time to discuss with me what we had the best possible chance of winning a grant with. I want you to know how much I appreciate your immediate response every time I called you.
“Going back ten years when I attended your grant workshop in West Virginia, I realized that you were a wealth of knowledge with successfully writing grants. After attending your class I was successful almost each year with obtaining AFG grants. Your method and flow of how to write these grants are very effective.
“In closing, I want you to know how much I appreciate all your assistance and advice over the years. It’s because of you that our fire department has state-of-the-art equipment and our firefighters are protected the best possible way. You may always use me as a reference to any fire department.”
