A Note from the President

Hello, my friends,

Who is the hero in your life? Is it your mother, your father? Maybe it is a national leader, like Martin Luther King, Jr. or a teacher who stimulated your imagination. It could be an unselfish employee who gave their time for others.

This month is a time to celebrate heroes and patriots. September 11, 2021, is the twentieth anniversary of the attack in New York City. Lives were lost and saved by so many. These are our patriots, our heroes. Their stories live on.

Keep telling stories and I hope to see you soon on Zoom.Our next Zoom event is September 11, which is the twentieth anniversary of 9/11, otherwise known as Patriots Day. We will feature four storytellers, Jim “Two Crows” Wallen, Christine Henderson, Mark Armato and Molly Postlewaite, telling stories of American patriots throughout our history.
