From Your President

2nd Qtr 2018

Hi - The calendar says it’s Spring, and I’m ready for it. Winter continued to play havoc with our schedules, but I think we’re finally past the snow. We were closed for snow days and holidays, but now we can get back into the swing of things and continue to support the Center in many ways. We have programs, presentations, and Lunch & Learns scheduled, so let’s all come out as often as we can. It’s great to be here and catch-up with friends.

The Newsletter is full of information for these next three months. As you noticed last quarter, we needed to have a one-page update in February. This allowed us to update items that changed or were added after the 1st quarter issue was published. We hope to continue with an update if needed in this quarter, but as you may have heard, the Newsletter is going back to the every-other month Newsletter starting with the July/August issue.

In my first quarter as President, I’m learning more and more about the internal workings of the Center that I hadn't known before. I’m working with Debbie to fill in the gaps. With that will come a few new committees over the next months. These committees will include members and spread the workload to allow better accomplishments of new   objectives. The first committee went live on March 29 - Ways & Means committee. Volunteers may be needed to serve on committees, and we need to know your experiences and knowledge, so let me know if you’d like to help. I’m working on creating other committees, which should make the Center even stronger.  

Also, our Center has new carpeting, and new furniture for the lobby will be ordered soon, thanks to a State grant received last year. The “Store” is also open, and the logo shirts and sweatshirts are nice. Other smaller changes have been made at the Center, including the addition of baby changing tables in the restrooms and some general fix-up of the building. Again, thanks to Rod Shultz for his talents to tackle these items.

- Ted Heimbach
