It is hard to believe that in a few hours we will be ringing in the second decade of the new millennium. It is incredible to think that 10 years ago we were concerned about Y2K and whether or not our computers would crash…..9 years ago the twin towers stood proud….there was no facebook….no twitter…what a long strange trip it’s been!
This time of year we all tend to make resolutions. F. M. Knowles, said “He who breaks a resolution is a weakling; He who makes one is a fool.” Whatever your tradition is, to make them or not make them, keep in mind one thing: The New Year brings us all the gift of a new beginning. It is a time to do what you want to do. The slate is clean and a new book awaits you. All you need to do is turn the page and write! It’s your life, and it’s your car . . . so drive it! No excuses…Now is the time….
Speaking of the time….There are 13 hours until the close of 2009 and 30 days until the close of our fundraising year, and Surprise Lake Camp still needs $50,000 to reach our fundraising goals. Please don’t leave it to others to make up the shortfall. As the year comes to a close, we urge you to reaffirm your commitment to SLC by making a tax-deductible contribution. We can make it if YOU step up and help us get there!
2009 was a difficult year for many of us, myself included. I wish you and your families love, health and happiness in 2010 (in no particular order).
See you all in 2010!
