MERIWETHER LEWIS MEMORIAL EISTEDDFOD FOUNDATION
February 15, 2011
I was inspired to become a donor to the Meriwether Lewis Memorial Eisteddfod because I believe the Welsh culture is seriously under-represented in North America. While everyone knows the cultural contributions of the Irish and the Scottish, few know anything of the Welsh. It is my belief that the M.L.M.E offers both Welsh-North Americans and those interested in Welsh culture an opportunity to sample it in a way that is modern, vibrant and valid. It represents the Welsh of today, and their achievements, contributions and aspirations in North American society. The M.L.M.E is inclusive and welcoming to all who have an interest in things Welsh and I am very proud to be associated with it.
