Newsletter is out and what a wonderful job that Jen Bailey and the
Newsletter Committee is doing. In fact, all of the Howard Family Association
Committee Leaders and members are doing a great job. We are losing a few of
our Committee Leaders soon. Not as members, but they have other duties in
their lives that they believe will not permit them
to dedicate as much as time as they think they should. Although I am
constantly talk to them in hopes of changing their mind, I have not been
very successful. the following Committee Leaders not be volunteering in the
Howard Lowery, Volunteer Coordinator<ML69camaro@aol.com>
if all of us email them and let them know what a great job they are doing,
they will consider staying on. Or if you would like to be in any of the
positions, email me and I will get you in the right track. We are always
looking for more volunteers no matter how little of time can be given to HFA.
I feel I need to let everyone know that I receive all kinds of email and I
do read it all, but I don't always get a chance to respond to each and
everyone of them. If you have sent me email and I haven't responded to you,
please email me again and I will try my best to reply. I sometimes
get overwhelmed with email. So, don't think I am ignoring you. At my age, I
am lucky I remember I have an email account.
Last but not least, the Howard Family Association Family Reunion had to be
cancelled this year and we are looking at trying for a great one in the year
2000, or as it is known as Y2K (Year 2 Thousand). Everyone this year, Y2K-1,
is invited to a Howard Family Reunion being held in Ohio on July 10, 1999,
near Akron. I will be there as some other HFA members. For more information
you can email me at Richard.Howard@Howard-Concepts.com or mail me at:

Hope to see you all at the July 10th reunion,
is the Volunteer Committee’s responsibility to help find volunteers for
positions open on all the committees of the HFA.
from the Volunteer Committee* HFA
has volunteer opportunities available with all committees. We need someone
to fill the Secretary position ASAP.If you are interested in this position or any of our volunteer
opportunities with HFA please email me at Volunteers@howard-family.com.
of the Web Site Committee:
The Web site Committee Volunteers are assigned one or more committees to
create and maintain the web pages for those committees. They work with the
Committee Leader getting what information they would like to have posted
there. The volunteer may create and modify the web pages in whatever
application they choose and then email me the finished project to me
uploaded (and linked when necessary) to the HFA Web Site.Many volunteers are needed so that each Committee can have the
necessary web pages created, maintained and updated when needed.
*Report from the Web Site
The Web Site Committee has
been looking at different things that could be added to the Howard Family
Association Web Site. some are suggestions from members and some are from
the Web Site Committee itself.
One HFA member sent an email containing the following suggestion:
"I have read with interest most of your postings. Great Job. Do you
have or have your considered an ethnic data group. There are quite a few
African American Howards out here trying to locate slave descendants.
African American roots are very difficult to trace and possibly some of your
Howard members may have some old family records they may share to assist our
I think this would be a great idea, but would not know where to start. If
anyone would like to join the HFA Web Site Committee and take charge of this
task, please email me at Richard.Howard@Howard-Concepts.com or mail me at:
10857 Amherst Ave. #302
Wheaton, MD 20902-4348
and I will be happy to get this going.
Another suggestion was to have a HFA Members section where any or all
members could post ads for their business. After thinking about this one, we
thought maybe a small Howard Family Mall would be a good idea.This area would not have to be family related, just owned or ran by a
HFA member. What are your thoughts?
As always, we welcome any and all suggestions. Please let us know what you
think. We could always use more help on the Web Site Committee, as most of
HFA Committees, and welcome any assistance no matter how large or small of a
contribution of time.
We are still working on making the Howard Family Association the Howard
Information central station on the World Wide Web.
Howard Family Association, Webmaster
