Since our country’s founding, volunteerism has helped define our national character! Winston Churchill is worth quoting on many subjects, what with his trove of pungent observations on everything from the benefits of drinking alcohol to the vulnerabilities of his political rivals. For all of his war cries, Churchill’s wisdom encompassed the gentler side of life, as well. Consider his observation on public service: “We make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give.”

You know it is great when a man can state that his family gets it! They understand that they can make a difference. Yes, I am very proud of my family.

Just remember this…. A big idea and a lot of determination can change a community. Vision without action is a day dream. Action without Vision is a Nightmare!

African proverb: “One does not prepare for a journey on the day he must begin.” Are you prepared? Every day, you need to hit the ground running.
