September 2020  

President's Report

Today’s pain is tomorrow’s  strength

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday weekend.  It is hard to believe that we are almost entering the 4th QTR of 2020. Yes, it has been a painful and challenging year and hopefully we have gained strength. We look to the future when  we can return to our monthly meetings in person and not virtually.  We had many positive comments regarding our August meeting with Bob Logan.  His presentation gave us insight on how to achieve happiness while living with COVID 19.  As soon as we receive Bob's presentation, Luann will post it on the website and notify membership.
