The Committee and membership of the Al Ain chapter are pleased to present Dr. Hasan Al Naboodah with a lifetime membership in the Emirates Natural History Group in recognition of his constant and generous support.
Dr. Al Naboodah has been a partner and sincere friend of the Al Ain chapter, offering assistance and encouragement to the group on many occasions. Together with the staff of the Zayed Center for Heritage and History, he has provided a home for the annual Iftar Dinner for more than five years.
He has been thoughtful and considerate in his inclusion of ENHG members in a variety of programs organized by the Zayed Center including annual archaeological conferences and weekly presentations.
The Zayed Center, under the inspired leadership of Dr. Al Naboodah, has made valuable contributions to the recording of history and culture in Al Ain and the UAE with its countless publications, valuable collections, comprehensive library and other resources, all of which are shared generously with the community.
For your sincere friendship, your unlimited generosity, and your thoughtful consideration, a heartful thank you, Hasan.
