Letter from the Hastings House President


Dear Neighbors,


As the outgoing Hastings House (FPCA) Board of Directors President, I am writing an open letter to encourage new volunteers to take a turn in support of a wonderful community organization. The FPCA annual meeting, including a vote for the next Hastings House Board of Directors, will be held on Wednesday, September 25th at 7pm.


After six wonderful years living around the corner from the Hastings House and volunteering with an evolving and dedicated group of neighbors, I am returning home to Oregon. While I am excited to be near my family again, moving so far away from this welcoming village is bittersweet.


When I moved to town, the Hastings House Board of Directors welcomed me with open arms and introduced me to many new friends. Members were happy to embrace the new energy I brought to traditional community events and fundraisers. Today, the Board looks forward to welcoming the next batch of volunteers willing to lend a little time, creativity, and energy to support the Hastings House facility and its community events. 


The Board encourages anyone with a few hours a year to spare in support of this venerable community institution to attend our September annual meeting to learn more about what the Hastings House Board of Directors does and what kinds of volunteer opportunities are available. 


The Hastings House Board of Directors meets on the second Wednesday of each month. Attending 12 meetings a year is a remarkably small commitment that greatly impacts our community! 


I sincerely hope you will consider carving out a bit of time in the coming months to volunteer for a Hastings House community event, or join our Board of Directors for a 2-year term this September. 


Volunteering for Hastings House has been one of the many joys I have experienced while living in The Farms. I sincerely encourage anyone who wants to be involved in a fun and positive experience to join the Board of Directors.  


Thank you “Farmers” one and all. It has been an honor to live here among you.
