A Note from Helen Heinig:
Thinking back on my senior year at Ohio Northern I have so much to be thankful for. Being on staff this previous season, I created cherished memories and experiences with Fendig. For my senior project to graduate, I spent time outside of the production coordinating grants and researching community engagement in Rensselaer.
I am thankful for the opportunity to learn about coordinating the areas of my degree with local community activities especially in my hometown. Working with a great production team, board and community has helped my education flourish.
In this Thanksgiving season, I wanted to extend my thanks to those of you who support this organization and took the time to vote for our Community Thrives submission. Although we didn't receive the grant, we increased awareness for our need and had many people become friends.
Becoming a Friend of Fendig will hopefully be a way to stay connected to an organization that has done so much for so many in the community of Rensselaer. Your time and support of Fendig and my project have been a true gift.
Rensselaer has supported Fendig for over forty years. Rensselaer cares about their children and the opportunities for them to grow. The research and your votes demonstrate a strong support of the arts. Rensselaer cares about their community.
Fendig has so much to be thankful for. We are thankful for the support and involvement of the community as we continue to advance theatre development for children.
Happy Thanksgiving. Wishing you all the best,
Fendig Summer Theater is a non-profit organization 501 (c)(3) for the advancement of theatre development in children.
