Call for Contributions towards the Todesanzeige for our Club President David Ilten

Dear Members of the Yale Club of Germany,.

We are all saddened by the loss of our President, Dr. David F. Ilten on April 20, 2019.

We expressed our loss in accordance with David’s wish to have an announcement of his passing in the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (überregional).

In view of need for timely action, I personally took responsibility for drafting and placing the notice which appeared in the FAZ on Friday, April 26, 2019. You can view the notice on this website operated by the FAZ Media.

The cost was approximately EUR 1.500 even after a 50% Discount for Vereine. I paid on behalf of the the Yale Club of Germany. I would greatly appreciate your sharing the cost. I volunteer to assume EUR 500 of the expense; however, if there is no response, then I assume legal responsibility (I have already issued the payment instruction).

If 250 members contribute, it would be kind if I were able to book a reimbursement of € 4; if 25 active members contribute, then € 40 would be appropriate. Any exess of the amount required will be contributed to the treasury of the Yale Club of Germany.

I do not have the time during the week to set up a new bank account for this purpose. Thus I will provide reimbursement details extracted from the account from which the notices was paid. On July 4, I will post a list of donations on Facebook in the Yale Club of Germany group.

If you provide an email to me giving me notice of your payment, I will send a confirmation notice as soon as I receive the information on my bimonthly account statement from the Norddeutsche Landesbank, Bremen.
