MEET OUR EXECUTIVE BOARD
DIRECTOR OF "FUN"
Heather and Connie are on the executive board but they wouldn't be able to do what they do if it weren't for help from the other amazing women who make up the committee!

“The Heritage Association of Hillsdale recently donated a beautiful sculpture to Mrs. Stock's Park, one of Hillsdale's many parks. The artwork done by Artist Heather Tritchka is remarkable. Hillsdale is fortunate to have such a talented artist and active Heritage Association board.”
