The Legacy Lives On:
A Letter from the MCJCF Board Chairman
We are so very proud and thankful for your support which has contributed to our accomplishments over the years.
The four days of family oriented, educational, and cultural events are all free, due to the contributions and support of community-oriented companies and organizations who understand the importance of supporting the customers and clients they serve.
We will continue, via the MCJCF Scholarship Fund to provide financial support to deserving students, which will add to the league of recipients attending Baylor University, Stephen F. Austin, Prairie View A&M University, University of Missouri – Columbia, Texas Southern University, and The University of Texas, to name a few. We are indeed proud of these bright young people who are working so hard to become an intricate part of America's mainstream.
I would be remiss not to thank the volunteers who have given their time and talent selflessly to better our organization.
Teddy Roosevelt wrote: "The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood" ...the volunteers in our organization epitomize this sentiment.
I am extremely grateful to the many friends and neighbors, who have over the years, contributed so willingly to the success of our efforts. We are the better for all their efforts!
Come and enjoy the largest celebration of its kind in the United States. - Don Smith
