As I draw closer to my retirement date in December 2016 I want to express how grateful I am for you. Thank you for your interest, your time, your financial gifts, your trust and your many contributions to the Center’s growth. It has been my priviledge to work with so many fine staff and board members. It has been my delight to relate to so many generous donors. And, it has been my honor to really learn about life from so many people facing tough challenges with courage and resilience. There is so much more I can say but for now I would simply like to offer this: thank you. I look forward to working together with Jim Hayes, our incoming executive director, for the month of December before passing the baton. I am excited for his leadership and look forward to supporting him with the same enthusiasm you have all given to me.
