In June, we had an amazing week in Guatemala celebrating 50 years of strengthening Mayan communities! Through site visits to our partner communities, social gatherings, our Celebration & Fundraising Dinner, and our Anniversary Mini-Tour, more than 150 friends and supporters took part in the festivities.
Best of all, we surpassed our $70,000 goal of celebrating 50 years by supporting 50 new families through our programs!
Jonathan Maupin, ALDEA Vice President, spoke at our anniversary dinner about the work and legacy of our founder, his grandfather Dr. Carroll Behrhorst.
ALDEA President Patricia O’Connor spoke about our present programs and acknowledged the contributions of the many staff, board members, and donors in the room who make our work possible.
