A Message from the President

Fall Message of Pause and Reflection

Brisk mornings, falling leaves and shorter days are reminders that nature is slowly meandering toward the solace of winter. Autumn has always been a reminder to pause and reflect on the bounty of the past year. As an organization robust with talent, intellect and compassion we have weathered well during this pandemic.

As we eagerly anticipate the joys of the upcoming holiday season, I wish to express gratitude on behalf of our management company, executive committee, and myself to you—our membership—for your generosity of time, talent and treasure to our organization. You honor yourself. Embrace opportunities to robustly cascade your generosity through meaningful contributions in your local communities.
