Maumee Valley Heritage Corridor has reached a critical point. We have been unable to secure funding to retain our Executive Director for more than a few hours per month, thus limiting our ability to provide the programs and services formerly offered.
As a result, we are working to be as financially responsible with your donations. We will be converting to an online-only newsletter, beginning with this, our April 2015, newsletter. However, because this is a free service for non-profit customers, we will be able to send a newsletter to you each month, We will also post in on our webpage atwww.maumeevalleyheritagecorridor.org, so that you can read it there as well.
Mark your calendars now for our annual Regional Trails Conference, October 9th, at Oberhaus Park in Napoleon, Ohio. Constructing a “water trail” along the Maumee River will be one of the topics. Check our next newsletter for more information.
Introducing New Board Member….Dave Westrick
I was born in Napoleon, Ohio, and raised on a farm outside of Ottawa. I graduated from Miller City High School and earned a Bachelors degree in Journalism from Ohio University. I worked as a newspaper reporter, media spokesman, ad agency copy writer and communications director before starting my own media consulting business. I am currently retired and living in Maumee with my wife Nanci. We have two daughters and four beautiful grandchildren. I am an avid outdoorsman and an amateur historian. In addition to belonging to several history, preservation and nature groups I currently serve as President of the Fallen Timbers Battlefield Preservation Commission. One of my favorite hobbies in canoeing. I spend a lot of time on the Maumee and have paddled every river in the watershed. Working with the MVHC strikes me as a natural combination of my love of history and the natural world.
