Sponsorships Being Sought for Annual Meeting

We are excited to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Fontaine-Maury Society. We are looking forward to a special time celebrating our family and getting back together after a two-year pause. Sadly, inflation has hit the hospitality industry hard resulting in higher costs for our weekend. To address this concern, we have created some opportunities for our members to help promote and support our annual meeting and gathering through sponsorships. You may sponsor as a business, a family or an individual.

“The Huguenot Happy Hour” A Friday evening fun social event with cash bar and locally flavored meal. -$100 sponsorship.

“The Travelling Huguenots” Saturday all day bus tour-$150.00 sponsorship.

“Music for the Ages” Entertainment on Friday night featuring wonderful musicians who will provide a narrative and music from the times of our ancestors’ travels. – $100 sponsorship

“That’s My Family”- Audio-visual rentals and other necessary expenses- $50.00 sponsorship

Checks or money orders may be sent to our treasurer, Mary Borjon- Callas at 64 Salvatore Novato, CA 94949. For planning and budgeting purposes it is hoped that sponsorships can be received by July 15, 2022.

With appreciation,

FMS Board of Directors
