Our journal will look back on the many people we have honored for their inspiring and educational accomplishments benefitting the people of the Virgin Islands. A congratulatory message from you will serve to create a memorable journal that will become a most valuable keepsake. The preferred file formats are PDF, tiff, jpg, MSWord or PowerPoint and should be sent to vifa20journal2011@gmail.com on or before March 15, 2011. Almost two decades ago, Virgin Islands Freshwater Association (VIFA), a 501(c)3 not-for-profit Association was founded to raise funds to assist those in need. We were first established in 1989 to foster and maintain linkages between those of us in New York with our communities back home. The impetus for the creation of this Association was the disaster in the Virgin Islands caused by Hurricane Hugo in September of that same year. Since then, our Association has provided scholarship assistance, hospital donations, services for senior citizens and needy children, as well as much needed relief in the aftermath of Hurricane Marilyn in 1995. VIFA was formed by a dedicated group of concerned Virgin Islanders who recognized the need for the preservation of our culture. The Association was created to cultivate cultural connections, interactions, and assistance to fellow Virgin Islanders; not only in times of crises, but whenever a need arises. Throughout the existence of the Virgin Islands Freshwater Association, our devoted members have worked diligently to ensure the ongoing success of our organization. Since our inception twenty years ago, some of our accomplishments have included the adoption of Nana Baby-Children’s Home in St. Thomas and we have continued to support them in their efforts to tend to our children first and foremost. Other significant contributions of this th remarkable organization include donations to the St. Croix United Fund; the September 11 Fund, Oprah’s Angel Network and the Clinton Bush Haiti Fund. Through our ongoing VIFA Annual Scholarship Program, selected graduating students have been recognized for their academic achievements and rewarded appropriately. Accordingly, we were especially pleased to have donated to the thirteen students that traveled from St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands – Charlotte Amalie High School (CAHS) and Ivanna Eudora Kean High School – to New York City to attend the United Nations Scholar Program from January 31 – February 14, 2010. We pride ourselves on always being prepared to improve the conditions of those in need, and those who may require a helping hand along life’s journey. We hope that you will contribute to Virgin Islands Freshwater Association to assist us in sustaining the level of timely responses that we have become accustomed to when it involves our people … Virgin Islanders. Sincerely, Helen George-Newton President HGN:llah Enclosures
