The following is a look back in history:

 

In 1993 when MPRA was initially chartered, prior to becoming a non-profit organization, the term Charter Member was used.  The term Charter Member was used in an effort to encourage people to sign-up at $100 each to generate funds, to support MPRA activities in the first year of operation.   We have a plaque listing the names of the 203 Charter Members.  No other benefit was given to Charter Members. 

Even more important was the 43 individuals who signed promissory notes of up to $3,924.84 as co-signers for the bank loan MPRA used to build the first 4 ball fields, add lights, and concession building.  The loan was paid off in 2001. 

All deserve our gratitude and a big thank-you for their unselfish acts.
