Hello, Shumla friends!
Since you are receiving this eNews, that means you have more than a passing familiarity with us. You know that we are a happy, hard-working bunch whose dedication to the
of our mission knows no bounds. We love what we do. We do it well. Day-by-day we are actively preserving the oldest known "books" in North America. That's enough for us.
Sometimes, though... it sure is nice to be recognized for a job well done. At this year's Rancher Steward BBQ and 20th birthday celebration, we received a surprise gift, a Certificate of Special Congressional Recognition! It was bestowed by Carmen Gutierrez of Representative Will Hurd's office. The certificate honors Shumla, our staff, volunteers, donors and friends for twenty years of passion and dedication to the preservation of the art of the Lower Pecos.
Twenty years and we're just getting started. But before we rush back off into the field, join me for a moment to bask in this milestone. You also get the credit. We wouldn't be here without you and your gifts to Shumla. Thank you!
All the very best,
