Interim President's Message
~ continued ~
If joining the Board isn’t a good fit for you, there are other ways that you can contribute. You can help the Board without being a member by participating on the nominating committee, assisting with events or our environmental activism efforts, or volunteering to run our social media account. You could volunteer at the Park in the many opportunities offered or possibly just bring some friends, neighbors, or family to HMP, and get them hooked.
The Board has perhaps been less active during the interregnum, but we have still gotten a lot accomplished over the last year. We have raised funds (e.g., Annie Stat’s amazing pop-ups selling FOHMP swag), which has allowed us to continue to fund important initiatives and needs at the Park. We have joined with other friends groups to advocate for funding for the parks in Fairfax County. And we successfully opposed a proposal for a major new development in a flood plain adjacent to the Park. With a new permanent president in place, we can achieve even more!
Thanks for all you do.
Ben Jesup, Interim President
