As the years passed, Harold and others in the community began thinking of a way to make it possible for him and others to share in and continue the success that he and Dolores had enjoyed in West Point.
That search resulted in the formation in 1991 of the West Point Community Foundation. The Foundation was formed to provide a convenient, tax advantaged opportunity for people to, in Harold’s words, “give back to a community that has helped make us successful”. Harold died in 2009, but in the words of his son, Dave, “The success of the West Point Community Foundation is one of the things that he (Harold) and Dolores were very proud of. They both see the Foundation as a way for us to ensure the bright future of West Point”.
Harold and Dolores are still part of passing the torch to our future!
