PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE - April/May 2021
Howdy Team! Judging by the winds we have been having in our Area of Operations lately it seems spring is in the air (or is that just dust)! As you are reading this in May I assume it is already a hot one so I hope everyone is getting ready for the June – September slog of hot temps. At least with this crowd you do not have to remind everyone to stay hydrated and watch that heat.
We were hoping to have our first face to face lunch in April, however I only received 11 RSVPs for “yes” and 5 for “no it is too early” so we cancelled it. We will send out another RSVP for a June lunch and I hope we can finally see each other face to face as it has been over a year. I do not know about you, but I am ready to get back to normal operating procedure. Please reply to the RSVP when it is sent out. 36 “Yes” is the magic number!!
With that said I hope everyone has got their vaccine (if you want it). If you are having any difficulty getting signed up or you are not sure what to do, please come up on the net as we have plenty of folks that can point you in the right direction. Read More
