HOLIDAY NEWSLETTER

Message from the Co-Presidents

 

Hi Everyone

It seems almost incredible that we are in the last month of 2018, preparing for a new year and it's resolutions. For us, 2018 was very special as we joined Hampton in commemorating 160 years of existence, "Celebrating Excellence...Preserving the Legacy." 

Our activities continue to reflect our passion for giving back to the noble institutions to which we owe so much of our being. Yet this year the fire was "turned up" just that bit more during our weekend of activities in South Florida in April, as we represented at the reunion in Jamaica in July, and at our annual fund-raiser in November.

We have clearly distinguished ourselves as a family of fun-loving fundraisers. We share a vision which allows us to commit every cent raised to scholarships. Since our inception in 2013 we are blessed to have helped over 100 smart, needy students at both Hampton and Munro and locally to provide some assistance to a residential program for challenged middle-school aged students.

We want to seize the opportunity to thank all who have participated in our events in any way. Your presence and contributions are priceless. This is all possible because of the love, passion, dedication and resilience of a very small core group of amazing individuals. It has been our honour to serve with this team this year.

Now, we go together into 2019, seeking to positively impact even more lives than we did in 2018. Together we are powerful and can achieve great things for our beloved Hampton and Munro. Help us restore and maintain all excellence, and preserve the beautiful legacy.

Dona-Lee Raymond & Horace Cox
The Team wishes you a very Merry Christmas and a prosperous 2019.
