for sale: 1964 Ford Mustang & Jaguar for sale in Fredericksburg, TX. Contact HughFuller3@GMail.com or 830-456-8797

1964 Ford Mustang & Jaguar for sale in Fredericksburg, TX:  HughFuller3@GMail.com or 830-456-8797 

1964 Ford Mustang:  not a “show room” only vehicle, or “trailer queen”, but one that I drive probably once every two weeks.  Typically, I take it into Fredericksburg to the coffee shop or very occasionally to the grocery store.  The fellow who restored the car bought it in May of 2002; when he had it appraised in July of 2003, the odometer read 44,444.  Now, it’s just over 50,000, for an average of about 521 miles per year.  I purchased the car on 6/27/2009, when the mileage was 46,885.   So, I’ve put on about the same per-year mileage.

An appraisal was performed by D.H. Auto Appraisals, specifically by Don Henderson.  His notes are that “the car is a very recent (2003) and excellent restoration of an all original car.  Everything has been restored back to the original where needed.  Workmanship is outstanding.”  I would add, however, that there were a few upgrades that 64 1/2s did not have, to wit: a pony interior, dual exhausts, fog lights, GT light bar, a rear valence panel, and a “cobra dress up kit”.

The Warranty data is: 5R08D101078.  It is a D code, 289/4barrel convertible.  It was built on July 21, 1964 in San Jose, California. The other plate information is: 76AD8621G7116.  Originally it was “Dynasty Green”, but was completely repainted in 2004 as “Rangoon Red”.  Where do they get these names?

The car has power steering, automatic transmission, original AC, power top, bucket seats, etc.

The original owner of the car later moved to Houston, Texas.  The restorer of the vehicle, Leland Landry, purchased it in Houston.  Leland is an interesting guy; he’s in his 80’s and restores cars as a hobby.  This is something he’s done for years, but now he has to “sub out” the work due to issues with his age.  He kept a notebook of all work done on the car, and by whom (receipts) as well as a CD with pictures taken during each phase of restoration.

He entered the car in the Mustang Club of Houston Auto Show in Fall 2004, where it was the “Class Winner”.  He also entered the car in the larger Houston AutoRama at the George R. Brown Convention Center in 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2008.  Each year it won “Outstanding in Class“.  I have these awards with me.  The car is garaged here in Fredericksburg and is in outstanding shape.  As an aside, I have taken it out on the open road several times, once to San Antonio and several times to Comfort.  Leland also had it on the road occasionally.  While I’ve only had it  on the Interstate once, I may have hit 100 mph while day dreaming.  May have.  This car not only looks great, it runs as though it were new.  Normally when I’m behind the wheel I’m driving the speed limit, of course……

What is the Country School Association of America (Video)

The CSAA brings a diverse group of individuals together including Museum volunteers, teachers, staff, faculty and students, preservationists, historians, re-enactors and interested citizens, to exchange ideas and resources. The CSAA holds an annual conference, provides a grant program, awards publication and video prizes, conducts surveys and publishes an electronic newsletter, all in support of the country schooling experience.

The CSAA is for people who wish to preserve schools, create or maintain museums, promote living history programs, and allow children of all ages to experience schooling as it was many years ago. It allows seniors a chance to relive their fondest schoolhouse memories, while offering educators and writers a forum to share research. Additionally, this organization encourages research on country schooling and provides a forum for those who wish to publish their articles. The annual CSAA conference grows larger as a forum for exchanging ideas among academics, preservationists, re-enactors, and just plain history buffs.

Nat. Panhellenic Conf.: values-based recruitment

Nat. Panhellenic Conf.:  values-based recruitment:  https://www.npcwomen.org/resources/pdf/Resolved%20to%20Educate%20-%20Values-Based%20Recruitment.pdf 

The National Panhellenic Conference (NPC) is a values-based organization. Its 26 member organizations are bound together through the shared values expressed in the Panhellenic Creed. Those values must be portrayed in the activities of College Panhellenics and individual chapters. So, College Panhellenics and individual chapters must ensure that
recruitment events are values-based and reflective of the NPC sorority experience.
Expressing NPC sorority values publicly sheds light on the expectations and standards guiding the member organizations and chapters. It assures that the women attracted to our organizations understand and embrace the commitment to living those values.

A values-based approach should be used with all recruitment styles.  Policy (1989, 1991, 1997, 2003, 2015), All College Panhellenics and their member chapters shall incorporate the following policies into their membership recruitment programs:

• Focus on conversations between chapter members and potential new members about organizational values and member organizations.

• Establish guidelines for membership recruitment budgets and set a cap on membership recruitment expenses, including the value of all donated goods and services.

• Keep decorations to a minimum and confined to the interior space used for recruitment rounds.

• Determine recruitment event attire for chapter members that reduces individual financial burden and eliminates costuming.

• Eliminate gifts, favors, letters and notes for potential new members.

• Eliminate recruitment skits.

What is the purpose of values-based recruitment?     What are the benefits of values-based recruitment?

• To ensure the future of chapters
• To make connections and build relationships between chapter members and potential new members (PNMs)
• To discover shared interests and values among chapter members and PNMs
• To display the high standards held by all NPC member organizations
• Potential new members (PNMs) seek the same core values, principals and standards
as the chapter members.
• Improved retention rates due to heightened PNM awareness of chapter expectations
before joining.
• Members are engaged in meaningful programming consistent with their own
reasons for joining.

What should values-based recruitment look like?     How can organizational values be shared during each round of recruitment?     What are some activities to replace
skits?     What are some sample questions to ask PNMs during values-based
recruitment?

Each campus’s primary recruitment schedule is determined by the number of invitational rounds it includes. Below are three suggested models.

• One invitational recruitment
»» Day 1: Open house focused on sisterhood and
philanthropy
»» Day 2: Preference
• Two invitational recruitment
»» Day 1: Open house
»» Day 2: Sisterhood and philanthropy

»» Day 3: Preference

• Three invitational recruitment
»» Day 1: Open house
»» Day 2: Sisterhood
»» Day 3: Philanthropy
»» Day 4: Preference

In order to provide potential new members with an overall picture of your chapter, a selected leader within the chapter should plan to present them with information about the theme of the event.

• Open house: The president or recruitment chairman shares why she chose the campus, what activities members are involved in on campus and accomplishments of the chapter

• Sisterhood: The scholarship chairman discusses academic standards for the organization and awards and notable internships held by chapter members. In addition, chapter member financial expectations are shared.

• Philanthropy: The philanthropy or service chairman provides information on the inter/national organization’s philanthropy and local service activities.

• Preference: Follows the recommendations of the inter/national organizations
