From the President’s Desk: November-December 2010

November brings us Thanksgiving – with the reminder to be thankful for all the things that bless us. Sometimes those things are possessions – a roof over our heads, a meal on the table, clothes on our back, and a reliable vehicle for transportation. Those are tangible things that we see every day but sometimes forget to recognize as a blessing. Most of us count our blessings by our loved ones – both friends and family – who surround us. Let’s also not forget to be thankful for good health.

Until we witness those who do NOT have these basic blessings, we don’t always realize how lucky we are! I am definitely blessed and want to be able to share my blessings with those that are less fortunate. I want to remind everyone that we have the opportunity to do just that. Please nominate your favorite cause for our annual charity event (our December Holiday Social).

Click here to submit your nomination! The steering committee will review, present for a vote, and read the winning nomination at the December Holiday Social.

I feel blessed that we have such an awesome networking group! The steering committee this year has been phenomenal! I want to remind everyone that you have an opportunity to join the steering committee for 2011. You can let any steering committee member know of your personal interest in a position, or you can nominate someone that you believe will be an asset to this group. Contact us today!

I look forward to seeing everyone Dec. 2 at By Design with our own chef Terrie Kohl preparing a fabulous meal! I pray that everyone enjoys the bounty of the season and can share the holidays with friends and family.
