PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE - February/March 2021
Happy new year team! Thank God 2020 is in our rearview mirror and I hope that this letter finds everybody in great health and spirits! We had a few close calls on the health front last year but with God’s grace it looks like everybody has turned the corner and are well on the road to recovery. Here is to a happy and healthy 2021!
I would like to take a moment and thank everybody who donated to the foundation on giving day. Initial reports look promising and we gathered twice as much moolah as we usually do. I will give you the exact amount in the next letter when all the counting is done but
again thanks and well done.
Unfortunately, COVID is still rearing its ugly head so we will again be postponing any face-to-face meetings. There is hope on the horizon and the vaccine is being distributed so finally some good news! Please take the time to sign up for the vaccine and before you know it, we will finally get a lunch where we can see each other again. I will keep you posted.. Read More
