President’s Report – November 2020
During this time of uncertainty, we must remember the season of gratefulness! November is a time to reflect and be thankful for the people we cherish and the daily life we are fortunate to live. Every day in November, let’s make a conscious effort to stop and think about just ONE thing we are thankful for… it may be your family, friends, business or it may be the car that takes you from point A to point B. There is so much joy in being thankful despite this coronavirus pandemic.
I’m so excited to announce our new incoming Board Members: Yolanda Allen-Jackson, A Savvy Employment Solutions; Dana Grimm, Daniel & Henry Co.; Kitty Harrison, Johnny Londoff Chevrolet; and David Sohn, US Bank. They will serve a 3 year term, starting January 2021.
