This is my last newsletter as an Executive Board Member. While I am very happy I don’t have to write anymore newsletters, I am going to miss being on the Board. I have been on the Board for many years in several different capacities and enjoyed every minute of it. I have made many friendships that will last a lifetime. I have also learned a lot from my fellow board members and committee chairs. I am so glad I took the time to volunteer and get more involved.
I want to thank everyone who has been on the Board, on the committees and volunteered to help BPA throughout the years I have been serving this Chapter. Without you and your dedication BPA would not be successful.
I encourage you all volunteer in any way that you can. I promise you will find it rewarding in many different ways.
I will still be serving as the Community Service Chair and I really hope that each and every one of you participate in our Community Service efforts in some way. We have picked small local charities to benefit from our fundraising and every little bit helps these organizations.
Here is a highlight of the year of Community Service:
