Friends of H2A up and running

A booster club for Santiam Hearts 2 Arts has held a successful organizing meeting and plans to gather monthly to discuss program and outreach opportunities.

Friends of H2A held its first monthly meeting Oct. 19, at Stewart’s Hall, in Mill City, and plans to continue meeting the third Thursday of each month.

This was after an introductory town hall meeting Sept. 27 during which prospective members could learn about the goals of the group and opportunities to volunteer.

Friends of H2A organizer Joyce Royland said the town hall was “a great success” with many residents in attendance and multiple individuals signing up to join.

“A lively discussion introduced prospective members, their backgrounds and interests, and demonstrated the interest in and potential for this new activity for people of the Santiam Canyon,” said Royland.

The stated goal of Friends of H2A is to discuss upcoming and ongoing H2A events and how members could volunteer, either by lending their expertise or simply spreading the word. 

Members are also encouraged to consider possible new programs that could showcase their skillsets and interests.

For information or to join, contact Royland at [email protected] or through H2A’s website Friends of H2A can also be found on Facebook.
