As the calendar year draws to an end it’s only natural to take a step back and take a look at the various accomplishments throughout the year. None of which would be possible had it not been for the leadership of past President Rick Plunkett. Thank you for your time, direction and mentorship.
As the year typically begins we had our Winter Social in January. Thanks to everyone who attended and made donations to King’s Harvest Ministries and King’s Harvest Pet Rescue. This is one of my favorite chapter events to attend and the one for 2019 is shaping up to be a good one. Look for details to be sent soon.
In the spring, we announced our scholarship winners. In total we had 7 students receive a scholarship. That’s great! That speaks very well to our fundraising efforts and our commitment to this program.
Our June gathering on ethics and diversity saw about the biggest turnout I’ve seen for an event in a long time. It’s great to have such local support from our area insurance companies to host these events.
For the second year in a row we’ve had outstanding weather for our annual golf outing. Your support of this event has made our scholarship program so successful.
As part of our continuing education, a webinar event was offered in October. Look for more of these types of opportunities to continue into 2019.
Finally, the events calendar concluded with our November I-Day. We were fortunate enough to have in attendance our chapter governor, some new designees and an area police detective as a guest speaker.
Backing up Rick was a great supporting cast of officers and directors that made these events successful. Volunteering doesn’t take up too much time and we are always looking for new insights. If you are interested in volunteering please let me know (firstname.lastname@example.org). I’d love to hear from you.
