Hello Ladies and Welcome to the 45th year of Heritage Assembly!
As you know, Heritage Assembly continues to work long before and after our fabulous ball each year. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Jennifer Murphy, last years President, for a wonderful year. Not only did Heritage Assembly disperse $43,000 in funds at Funding Day on May 13, we also awarded over $6,000 in scholarship monies to local teens. Of course, none of this would be possible without every one of you, but that is part of what makes Heritage Assembly such a special and unique organization for our community.
The newly installed Executive Board had its first meeting on June 7th at Chisholm Trail. Funding interviews were also conducted this day and we had a full day of requests. The funding recipients for 2010-2011 will be announced at the Heritage Assembly New Member Tea on October 17th at the home of June Bates. Please carefully consider potential new members. Remember that we do have a waiting list and will move new members up based on receipt of application. As always, this is a fundraising organization so please encourage new members based on willingness and enthusiasm to reach Heritage Assembly's yearly goals.
Please read Membership VP Holly George's letter carefully and check the dates for membership renewal. Due to rising postage costs we will be sending just this letter as a reminder of the deadline. You may mail in your check or log on to our website at www.heritageassemblytexas.com to pay your dues online via Paypal. Please include your email on your form so we can expand the lines of communication within our group.
Make sure and mark your calendars now for the New Member Tea October 17th. The Heritage Assembly Executive Board has been discussing plans for additional member socials and opportunities to contribute back to our community and I hope everyone will be receptive to some changes and additions to our group. Heritage is coming close to the $1,000,000 mark in returned funds to Johnson County and I know that our 45th year will prove to be another success with everyone's help!
Thank you for your continued commitment to Heritage Assembly and please don't hesitate to call me with any questions, comments or ideas.
All of my love and dedication,
