The Friends of Hemlock Gorge

Annual Letter to Members, 1994

November 24, 1994

Dear Friends of Hemlock Gorge:

At this time of Thanksgiving and Holiday cheer, we write to you to mark the end of another eventful year for the Friends and to appeal to you to renew your membership and your commitment to our activities in 1995.

Above all, we invite you to participate in our monthly meeting, held at 7:15 p.m. on the first Tuesday of every month at the Emerson Community Center on Pettee Street in Newton Upper Falls. (Mark these upcoming dates: Dec. 6, Jan. 4, Feb. 1, Mar. 1, Apr. 5, and May 3!) Please do come to the next meeting; we need ideas and look forward to the pleasure of your company!

The following were among the activities sponsored, supported, and lobbied for by the Friends in 1994:

Activities planned for the immediate future that require volunteers are numerous.

None of these activities can or will take place, however, without your support. The financial needs of the Friends are few but important. Your dues pay for stationery, postage, and the buttons and T shirts that we sell at fund raisers. It also pays for our new post office box that will get your correspondence to our dedicated secretary, Hannah Sherman, faster and more reliably! Please take this opportunity to read the enclosed brochure, fill it out, and renew your membership for 1995 in whatever amount you can.

Whether you're an active member, a member who may not have paid dues for 1994, someone who would like to join formally for the first time, or just a Friend, we welcome your response and participation. Because we want to inform as many members of the community as possible about our efforts, it's not necessary to be a member in order to receive mailings, but we would like to know who is interested and who isn't. Enclosed is an envelope complete with stamp and our NEW ADDRESS to make your response easy. Please fill out the enclosed membership card and return it with your preferences indicated. If you wish to join or renew, dues categories are listed on the card. Dues for 1995 can be paid now or at any meeting.

Thank you for your interest in the preservation of the Hemlock Gorge/Echo Bridge Reservation. We hope to see you in December.

With best wishes,

Vaunita Schnell, President

John P. Mordes, M.D., Membership Coordinator
