The success of Hillcrest is dependent on the support of the Board.  As Hillcrest enters its 50th year of operation, the Board is tasked with developing a strategic plan to ensure sustainability for the next 50.  If you are interested in helping with this, please join us at our monthly meetings on the third Wednesday at 5:30.  Participation on the Board counts toward your required annual volunteer hours.  Once you have attended two out of the last three meetings, you can email with your name, a short bio, and why you are interested in joining the Board to be shared for the next Board opening.
