Letter from our President:
November 19, 2018
Dear Friends -
More than 160 years ago, Samuel Hitchcock and a committee of fundraisers who would go on to become trustees, undertook a campaign to raise the money to construct the building that now stands at 2 Brookfield Road.
Contributions of $25, $40, or $100 in the 1850’s from community members helped build Hitchcock and since that time, countless people of all ages have spent time in our community center; teaching, learning, creating, celebrating, socializing and coming together to help and support their neighbors.
I am reaching out to you today, as the current Trustee President of our community center, undertaking another fundraising campaign to help sustain the organization that preserves this legacy and historic building.
My request is the same as my predecessors from all those years ago: $25, $40, $100, or whatever you can contribute to ensure that our community always has a place to learn and share and support. (Adjusted for inflation, $40 in 1850 is more than $1,200 now!)
I am thankful that our community had the foresight to invest in Hitchcock all those generations ago. I hope that you will join me in supporting the organization for all of us today and for the generations that are to come.
Ronald P. Christensen
President, Board of Trustees
