It has been a pleasure to get to get to know all of you and it has been our honor to be your instructors. The friendships and memories we have made over the last 5 months have been the absolute best and we will hold them dear.
Regrettably, we are leaving Hospitality House and all the different things we did, which brought us great joy because reaching out and touching people in their circumstances is who we are.
The reasons why we will no longer be at Hospitality House will all become clear in our letter of resignation to HH; which we have decided to make public in the same way as we have been unfairly presented to the public by the very people we highly esteemed at Hospitality Board.
We feel it is important that you know directly from us; from the lies which will come …directly from the mouths of the guilty parties themselves in the days ahead as cover up attempts happen.
We are moving on and moving forward with our life and our efforts to continue touch people in a positive way. We rebuke the lies, gossip and slander of our name.
Dale and Shirley Johnson
Here is the letter…
To Hospitality House Board President, Dale Weathers,VP, Karen Rothstrom et. al
Effective this date of April 7, 2023
We, Dale and Shirley Johnson, submit our resignation from the HH Board, as we find it difficult to continue to give of our time, efforts and money, while knowing that we have been lied about, slandered and unfairly and unkindly demoralized to the point that we have lost the zeal, trust and friendship we arrived with.
Effective immediately, we are leaving the board and handing over all the hats we wore in the short time of 5 months to include:Our Friday morning reception scheduleOur Friday evening dance classesOur 4th Saturday Cooking SlotDale’s involvement with Veterans affairs help to BradManagement of all the Social Media platforms that I created for HH which include - FB page - Monthly Paper Newsletter Print Out - YouTube page for HH - WEB page & cancellation of further funding (with my personal funds) after Nov 15, 2023
We NEVER came here to “take over” anything or anyone’s position. We loved H.H. so much that we advertised it heavily in all of it’s social media. ALL PEOPLE, ALL WALKS, ALL AGES, WELCOME.
The FB page, Newsletter, YouTube and WEB page are all proof positive to anyone that can read, that for us it was always about HH and how to enhance it and bring in more of the community. We came, we saw needs and we worked quickly and diligently to make things happen strictly for the betterment of Hospitality House…at ZERO cost to HH.
While you were busy waiting for board meetings that got cancelled or waiting for “concensus” during time sensitive issues; we were making things happen to benefit HH and the community at zero cost to you. Most recent activities accused us of not falling in line with the board protocol,YET the board has not followed its own procedures and no one has called you on the carpet. (Rules for thee, but not for me?) Instead of you being excited for HOSPITALITY HOUSE and all good things, we were unfairly and unjustly, slandered, blatantly lied about and condemned by the people we respected, revered and counted as real friends, the Board.We NEVER came with intention to harm but to help. The proof is all around for you to see.
We wish Hospitality House all the best.
Dale & Shirley Johnson
