Become a Member-at-Large

In 2012, the Friends of Gillespie County Country Schools (FoGCCS) started Member-at-Large due to interest from people wanting to support the restoration of the historic schools. They often stated that they didn't want to belong to an individual school or to attend meetings but felt that they wanted to assist and promote the preservation and use of the early schools.

The Member-At-Large provides us with a convenient way for people to support FoGCCS, along with the opportunity for us to share our progress in restoration and events on a regular basis. People liked this idea of belonging and felt it created a sense of community, while keeping our history alive and inspiring our youth. Our annual newsletter, CHALKBOARD NOTES, as well as periodic email updates, let them be a part of preservation in Texas. People want to make a difference!

We have found that each of the country schools tell others who we are. Since everyone has attended a school, everyone can identify with schools and memories. Preserving our historic schools brings those memories to life and reminds us to be true to who we are and what is valued.

The renewal for Member-At-Large occurs on January 1 of each year.

As a Member-at-Large, you will be acknowledged on our Officers & Committees page.
