We are pleased to introduce  you to an organization in Chappell Hill, Washington County, TX. that has proudly served the community with an Annual Memorial Day celebration since 2009, The Chappell Hill Cultural Heritage Group. This non-profit group is made up of former residents of the community. Our organization is committed to honoring all the lives sacrificed in order to preserve our freedoms, and among the most important purposes of our organization is to help students of all ages understand the true meaning of this holiday and why it is celebrated. We invite you to be a part of this American Tradition. 

We estimate that today approximately 25% of the youth in our town are unable to answer basic questions about this important holiday. For example, many students are unaware of why this holiday is celebrated, or the difference between Memorial Day and Veterans Day, and equally important, the symbolic meaning of our American Flag. The chchg created an opportunity for students, grade 4-8, to participate through essays and drawings. We believe that this kind of participation help reinforce a deeper understanding of the holiday, builds confidence, and encourage patriotism. 

 For example, a 5th grade student spoke these words from his essay …“For some years now, my family and I would go to the cemetery to stand over a piece of land with a stone at the top of it. While standing there in silence, no one talked, and as I watched my dad with tears in his eyes, I would wonder, what are we doing her, why do we have to come to such a place? After my parents explained to me that my grandfather, Fred Douglas Witchet, was buried there, not because of his age, but because he was killed in the Vietnam War. (My grandfather served in 3 wars, WWII, the Korean War and the Vietnam War), Now, I understand why my father had tears in his eyes.

I am very proud of the efforts of our organization to make our community a better place.

Each year, we provide the community with a program that include volunteer guest speakers,  musical tributes, a wreath laying ceremony, and most important, student essay readings.  Please give serious consideration to this opportunity to be a part of something that helps students grow in patriotic pride, gain respect for our military, and succeed as future leaders. We are asking for your financial support because we believe that everyone has a stake in the youth of America.
