As we work towards our GOLDEN ANNIVERSARY on August 19th, and in this post complete the collection of Foundation NEWSLETTERS, we want to give SPECIAL THANKS TO REID & MARCIA JOHNS, who are responsible for the  BEAUTIFUL NEWSLETTERS that we have all noticed in recent years up to 2010 as well as for their  outstanding leadership role in the Foundation for 15 years.
NEW NEWSLETTER printed & sent only to those with no email
Newsletter #11 June 2017 Made up from email notices of recent YouTube videos & Historical Documents

Dear Friends,
The enclosed newsletter was created and printed especially for those for whom we don't have email addresses and who consequently don't receive frequent email notices of new YouTube videos, Historical Documents, Newsletter, photo/essay reports and other items we produce to keep all well informed about what the Foundation is doing. We are quickly approaching the time when I will be very occupied for two months to finish the exploration/photographic portion of my High Uintas Wilderness Project ( and so from now until August 31st,  when the Foundation is retired, there will be fewer informational/promotional items created, but please keep us in mind and help us finish our mission up to the end of August.   Between backpacks I will have to re-supply and so will check the mail, and make contacts with our representatives in Guatemala and keep the projects going right up to the end--but it's well to remember at the end of August we do need to have in the bank account sufficient to meet our year-long commitments, like at the Ariel & Ines Andersen Chuluc School,  so in the last month or so, an extra donation or two will help a lot & if you are one who donates once a year in December,  please do it in August.   We also just finished making available all the newsletters from  1967-2017 & printed for you the new post from the website that lists the new scanned newsletters several of which review critical history.
In addition to the historical videos & Historical Documents outlined in the enclosed Newsletter, there will be at least one more YouTube video of a Promotional/Historical video made in 1991 & hopefully the amazing documentary about the Corn Improvement Project that showed Indians how to achieve a 650% increase in corn yields.  So check on the website for any such updates.  THANKS A MILLION FOR ALL YOUR HELP IN COMPLETING 50 YEARS OF EFFORT!

Note:  The letter was especially for the Joseph Jensen family, whose wife, Cheryl, had just passed on and a contribution was received from family members.  It has some interesting facts about our work.  Joseph Jensen is my 2nd cousin who for more than 17 years has been the major contributor to the Foundation.
