This is a group I have been privileged to work with for a few years, now. The are all top notch, work hard and focus on the common goal to produce a level of work product that should be envied by other non-profits. Doing long range planning and checking on accomplishments of established goals keep a unified and steady path to achieve them.


The Welsh-American community recognized their accomplishments when the National Welsh American Foundation awarded 2 of the Board members with the NWAF Heritage Medallion in 2010.

The memorial path in the garden attests to the honor bestowed on the Welsh ancestors of Welsh-Americans.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The fantastic Welsh hwyl and camaraderie among the participants of the Welsh Heritage Festival held Columbus Day weekend in October of odd numbered years. I've heard so many Welsh-Americas say they feel they have come home when they attend.

Not changes, but wishes. 1-I wish for more volunteers to accomplish more of our goals. 2-More donations to the endowment fund to be able to have at least 1 hired staff member as everyone here is a volunteer. 3- We are quickly becoming the archival depot for records of other Welsh-American organizations and we need a new building to accommodate all the documents and artifacts entrusted to our care.

The Great Plains Welsh Heritage Project hosts a biennial festival where folks from around the country come together to celebrate our Welsh Heritage. We participate in traditional Welsh activities, singing and dancing. We have guest speakers who relate tales of Welsh settlers and Welsh culture. Our 4th Welsh Heritage Festival will be held Oct 7-10, 2011 and we hope to see you there!

The Great!

meeting folks in person who previously were just names in my mother's childhood stories. As an avid genealogist, it's been a pleasure to meet extended family members and help others find their lost relatives "across the pond."

ask that all young Americans with Welsh ancestry join us in our quest to celebrate and document their ancestors' immigration to this country.

What a wonderful project to honor our Welsh Heritage! The museum in Wymore, Nebraska is outstanding with oral histories, artifacts, displays and information about our ancestors. I learn smething new each time I visit.

The pump organ I played when I attended worship at Bethel Presbyterian Church south of Wymore during the 1940's and 1950's is now in good working order and used at the Welsh Centre for programs and services.

I want everyone who has Welsh ancestors to visit the museum and become a member of GPWHP.
