We believe that you are aware of the Peter Henrich Henning Family League which was originated by the Hennings for the Hennings. As we are proud of the success of the League, we would like to inform you of what has been accomplished since it was established in 1984, and to offer you the opportunity to become a member:
Despite what has already been accomplished , thanks to the participation of many members, we still have various aims and ideals, the most important being the maintenance of the family history, register and museum. We are also building a bursary fund from which bursaries could be awarded to meritorious Henning students.
In order to achieve these aims we obviously require the support of all Hennings — INCLUDING YOURSELF. It will be appreciated that the more members we have, the easier it will be to meet our commitments. The only financial obligation to you joining the association is your annual membership fee (donation). The annual fee (or donation) is determined by yourself. At present members donate amounts between R60.00 and R300.00 annually. Naturally we would have liked to have offered you this facility free of charge, but because of the expensive times in which we live, this is not possible. For example, the administration of the Family League alone is expensive when you consider the cost of publishing the newsletter, envelopes, stamps, computer, etc.
We believe that apart from the personal benefits that you would experience on becoming a member of the association, our Henning descendants will benefit the most — eg. The Henning museum and the recording of the Henning history.
Please find attached an application form. Do not hesitate to contact me telephonically if you have any enquiries. After you have joined, a membership certificate with the Henning Coat of Arms in full colour and other applicable documents will be forwarded to you. We would appeal to you to support this deserving cause.
