FRIENDS OF BOOKER T WASHINGTON NATIONAL MONUMENT

FALL ~ 2016

What a time was had!  In its fifth year, the Legacy Dinner, under the theme of “Milestones”, did not disappoint.  There is likely not one single participant who would not agree that this year’s event was a blast.  From speaker Michael Allen’s inspiring and electrifying words about the National Park Service and its Centennial, to the sumptuous southern fare of caterer Judy Starkey, to the excitement of the silent auction, to the beautiful birthday cake that paid tribute to Dr. Washington’s 160th birthday, it appeared that everyone in attendance had a great time.  No doubt, many are ready to do it all over again. Mark your calendars for April 22, 2017     ~By Carla Whitfield, Superintendant, Booker T Washington National Monument

"I have learned that success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has overcome while trying to succeed."        Booker T. Washington

ANNUAL MEETING OCTOBER 29, 2016

On your next visit to the Park please check out our scrapbook of memories the Friends made in the 8 years our group has been around!  Take a brochure for your neighbor, or better yet bring them with you to see the new movie, THE MEASURE OF A MAN.  Our next Annual Meeting is right around the corner so please mark your calendar for October 29 and plan to join us to learn more about our year’s activities and upcoming plans.  ~By Robertson Simmons, Vice President, FBTWNM

Say it ain't so.  Summer is about over and October is fast approaching.  October is special for the Friends because it is the month we host our annual metting.  We like to acquaint ourselves with our new members and reacquaint ourselves with our members that have been with usfor a while.  It is also when we elect our officers and new board members.  This year we will be electing a new President, Recording Secretary and Corresponding Secretary and a few new board members.

If you are interested in being an officer or joining our board please let me know.  This is my last year as president and I am chairing the nominating commettee.  We need more help by those that believe in our cause to help take the Park and Friends to greater heights.

If you are not interested in joining the board, come out anyway and help us elect those that will help guide the Friends over the next two years and join us for a cup of coffee, a bite to eat and conversation.   ~By Penny Edwards Blue, President,FBTWNM
