Great Plains Welsh Heritage Project
February 1, 2011

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.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

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.

MY ROLE:
Board Member & Iowa representative to the Board.
