Hey Herd: Some news from National Convention.
At the awards banquet last evening at the C.A.R. National Convention, The Hungerford Resolves Society was named the number 1 Society in C.A.R., being named the first most outstanding Society for 2009-2010!!
Our Society president, Chase Brokaw, and the Society members present at the banquet, were presented with a beautiful silver bowl engraved with “First Place, N.S.C.A.R., National Merit Award 2009-2010” and a certificate stating “Hungerford Resolves Society, MD, first most outstanding society 2009-2010,” by National President, Emily Falkenstein.
Our Society won this award because of all our members’ combined efforts, dedication, and love of C.A.R. Thank you to all who aided in our receiving the highest award presented from C.A.R. to a Society. It was the dedication and hard work of all those who presented programs throughout the year, sent in articles for the newsletters, attended the many events we do annually, your monetary contributions, and all the time you all have given to our Society.
Thank you to everyone who participated this past year in any way in our Society to make this award possible. I know I am repeating myself but it is the combined effort of many within our Society that we were able to reach this highest goal!
In addition, Hungerford Resolves received the following awards:
Gold Honor Award
Third Place National Historian Contest (Local society with the best program on a
Second Place Conservation Contest (Local Society with the best program)
Third Place C.A.R./DAR/SAR/S.R. Relations (Local society with the best Program)
???? Place Mountain Schools (Mrs. Oyler has this certificate so I will forward the exact award information when I receive word from her).
It is wonderful to work with a group of young people with such a love of C.A.R. You ALL should be proud of your accomplishment this past year! Mrs. Snouffer tells me that our society has never won this first place award before but that we won second or third place approximately 30 years ago.
Be sure to attend our society meeting next Sunday, April 25, 2010, 2:00 p.m. at Kraft Home, to see the bowl and all our awards from state and national.
CONGRATULATIONS HERD, YOU ROCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
