s J reflect upon my two years as President of the Board of High Hopes, it seems like only yesterday that we sac down ro talk about our vision for rhe future and, consequently, mustered up rhe courage to embark upon rhe second phase

of a major fundraising campaign co expand the facility and increase our endowment.

Now, a year and a half later, we have a Building Expansion Plan and have raised nearly $2 million coward our $2.6 million Campaign goal. As part of tliat fundraising effort, we app lied for and were awarded a $220,000 Challenge Grant from the Kresge Foundation. The Kresge Foundation is one of che most prestigious and sophisticated foundations support ing the work of nonprofit organizations, with very high expectations and guidelines for giving. Receiving this award is a testimonial to rhe

Building Our Futur

progress High Hopes has made over its first twenty-six years. While this grant award is a real boost co the Campaign, receipt of the $220,000 is contingent upon our raising approximately three times chat amount by September I, 2001 . We are optimistic char chis will be done, bur it will require continued hard work and a lot of support from the community. As you read chis, we will have begun requesting bids on our expansion projecr. Riders, staff, parents and volunteers have all

been involved in designing the increased space, and we are confident chat t he new facility will enable us co improve the ourcomes of the High Hopes experience for the many people we serve. Thanks ro both the Dairch and Gui tat families, we were able co acquire another 62 acres of land contiguous to our existing property, giving us a tota l of l 25 acres of land. As pare of our overall expansion projecc, the additional land will give us increased flexibility as we move forward. We are fortunate co have such generous friends and neighbors co help us achieve out goals. Speaking of friends, Mark and Dorinda Winkelman hosted our biennial benefit event, Symphony in the Meadows, at their home in Essex on June !Och. With more than 750 contribucors in attendance, chis event was a record-breaking success.

As we look forward co the future wirh optim ism, we also reflecc on our past and all of the wonderful people who make up ou r history and share in our achievements. They are our roots, and ma ny of them are still active supporters and volunteers . Ir is because of their strength, wisdom and insight rhat High Hopes is as strong as it is today. J look forward to building on this strength as we continue to meet the challenges chat lie ahead.

I am of the opinion that my life belongs to the community, and as long as I live, it is my privilege to do for it whatever I can. I want to be thoroughly used up when I die, for the harder I work, the more I live. Life is no 'brief candle' to me. It is a sort of splendid torch which I have got hold of for a moment, and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to the future generations. George Bernard Shaw
