Banquet was Superb!


It is so gratifying when people leaving an event are all saying it is the best one ever.  That is certainly what happened last night!  The Banquet was "sold out," many people were there whom we haven't seen in a while, the awardees were so deserving of recognition, and Ryan was delightful.  He tells about his life and work in such an entertaining, inspirational way.  He made so many excellent points.  One that struck me especially was that some of the best things in life are unplanned.  That takes a faith that so many lack these days.

I want to thank Bea Martins, Matt Hanafin (who is developing into a great speaker), and their committee, and our Executive Director, Pat Stewart, emcee par excellence.
