Never Take for Granted
Giving Back to the Historical Association
The message of Independence Day: never take for granted our liberties and our freedoms. But also, on a more modest level, we ask you not to take for granted your Historical Association. MVHA raises the funds and provides the volunteer hours to offer gatherings like the 4th of July Parade and Picnic, which so many of us recently enjoyed. This is among a number of other popular annual neighborhood events. Additionally, MVHA provides many other benefits, chief among them, helping safeguard the historic beauty of the neighborhood.
All of this is free of charge to resident Monte Vistans and friends. But please don‘t take it for granted. Do your part. Membership dues provide the backbone of funding for the Association. So please join, and please don’t forget to continue renewing your membership every year. You are also invited to volunteer to serve on the Board, or to help with events such as the 4th of July, the Easter Egg Hunt, or the Third Thursday Gatherings. We never have enough help. Be a docent for the upcoming Home Tour; we will need dozens of them.
You are welcome to Monte Vista’s benefits, whether you join or volunteer. But we urge you to consider giving back.
