For the CCHAC board, Reba Beck and Marsha Christy, co-presidents
The Clay County Historical & Arts Council would like to express appreciation to Historic Hayesville, Inc. and Small Town Mainstreet for their support of the renovations to the interior of the Old Jail Museum. The generosity and hard work of HHI/STMS are evident as residents and visitors enjoy summer flowers and holiday decorations downtown, a glimpse of the history and life in Clay County at their exhibit and the new trashcan covers around town. These, among many others, are examples of the commitment of these dedicated volunteers who have taken as their mission the enhancement and renewal of our town and community.
CCHAC has an understanding of the hard work involved in raising funds through events such as the Festival on the Square or the Steins and Wines Around the Square. Having that as our reference point gives us greater awe and appreciation for their generosity in designating the proceeds from ticket sales, again this year, to the renovation fund for the museum. HHI/STMS has presented a strong example of what can be accomplished through planning and implementing efforts to improve the community.
Each event that draws visitors and residents to celebrate and enjoy the renewed and rejuvenated downtown Hayesville demonstrates the importance of joining efforts together to create a welcoming environment in our community. HHI/STMS serves as the inspiration for the spirit of team work that reminds us that we can truly be greater together. Thank you again for your dedication to that mission and for your generous contribution. I just read a quote by Robert Ingersoll who wrote: “We rise by lifting others.” What an excellent way to describe what motivates HHI/STMS.
