WAYLAND CHAMBER ANNOUNCES FRIENDS OF THE HENIKA DISTRICT LIBRARY AS 2018 CHAMBER CHARITY RECIPIENTS

The Wayland Area Chamber of Commerce have proudly announced that Friends of the Henika District Library of Wayland have been selected as the recipient of this year’s Charity of Choice.

The chamber is honored to annually select one charity to raise awareness and funds for at various events throughout the year including, but not limited to, the Annual Chamber Business Expo and the Annual Chamber Golf Outing.

The Friends of the Henika District Library goal is to support and help the Henika District Library serve the Wayland Community by providing volunteers, fundraising, and book sales. They are a non-profit volunteer group, comprised of people who know that our library is essential to the educational and cultural well-being of our community. They focus their interest in the library and work to help add the extras that tax dollars don’t cover– the resources for special programming, building maintenance and improvements, and support for the annual summer reading program. They aim to make the library a continuing cornerstone in our community and to provide opportunities for everyone in our community to engage in the joys of life-long learning. Friends of the Henika District Library Member Melanie Suk stated, “We are honored to be chosen as the Charity of Choice for 2018 by the Wayland Chamber.  We are excited for all the good that we can do for the library and the community with this opportunity.”

In order to be selected as the charity recipient, interested organizations must complete an application process that includes describing their mission, goals, and objectives. The Chamber Board of Directors reviews the applications and takes a vote to determine which charity to adopt for the year.
