Tunneys issue challenge

Dear Editor,

We are near the end of our efforts to raise the funds needed to purchase the lot to expand Osborne Point, the site of world heavyweight boxing champion Gene Tunney's training area.

Jay and Kelly Tunney, Gene Tunney's son and daughter-in-law, will match any funds up to $25,000 that are raised for the Gene Tunney Memorial between now and Oct. 15. If we can raise $25,000, Jay and Kelly will send us a $25,000 check.

They made the offer after visiting Speculator earlier this month and seeing the great local interest in Gene Tunney.

Anything you feel you can do will be greatly appreciated. Donations are tax-deductible and can be made to The Village of Speculator, POB 396, Speculator NY 12164. If donating by check, please write "Osborne Point" on the memo line.
