As is happening across the county there is a movement by those who want to rewrite our HISTORY. As a VILLAGE it is time to tell “OUR STORY” – GENERATIONS – OUR STORY THRU TIME is this year’s theme.
Below are links to the materials supporting the Annual African American Heritage Program Scholarship Fundraiser which will be presented to the community on the evening of Thursday, February 24th. This is our largest scholarship fundraiser for the class of 2011, and it’s a great opportunity for parents, mentors and students to work together and make this our most significant moment — at this historic and highly political time as African Americans — we have the opportunity to TELL OUR STORY.
WE need to get our children involved in REHEARSALS and with recommendations for the program. A rehearsal schedule will be posted shortly. Attached please find the original AAHC 2011 – Generations – Committee Listing please advise which function you would like to volunteer for.
We are in need of the following to make this event a success:
- Business and personal ads – Generations Ad Info Sheet
- Costumes and props from throughout history ( African, military, career)
- Interviews with our elders, veterans, friends and family members who have a story to tell for the media piece of the presentation (please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for a list of questions)
- Fathers and male guardians to step up to get our sons involved with some minor woodworking to produce some simple back drops (again, comment to this posting or email us at email@example.com if you would like to volunteer)
- Donation of wood for the backdrops (e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org or comment)
- Encourage your friends and family to donate – “Generations” supporter letter
- Distribute a Generations Flyer
If you can not participate please feel free to send in a donation via our PayPal link, e-mail us at email@example.com or snailmail us at Mt. Hebron H.S., 9940 Rt. 99, Ellicott City, MD 21042, addressed to Parents of African American Students Mt. Hebron High School.
We look forward to working with you and celebrating with you!
We are excited about this opportunity to share our heritage! There is so much misinformation out there. Join us as we celebrate!
