A Note from the President

Hello & Happy Holidays to all of you,

In olden times winter holidays were full of light, whether the candles were lit one day at a time on the Menorah or one time only on a tree or carried from house to house to guide the path or even mounted on someone’s head to bring the holiday buns to the parents.

Everyone needed and wanted light and still do. Light brings hope and the beginning of Spring. Light energizes me and makes me work harder and think better. I love light.

I am sure there are stories to go with every one of the holidays that are lighting this season. World Candlelight day, Diwali, Advent, Christmas, St. Lucia Day, Las Posadas, Hanukkah and Kwanzaa come to mind. What holiday do you celebrate

with light? What is the story you tell?

“I will tell you something about stories . . . They aren't just entertainment. Don't be fooled. They are all we have, you see, all we have to fight off illness and death.”
― Leslie Marmon Silko, Ceremony
