New Year Resolutions

Dear Chapter –

Ringing in the New Year is a cause for celebration, for spending time with friends and family, and for offering happy New Year wishes.  Many people look forward to the New Year for a new start on old habits.  A lot can happen in a year and between the good, the bad, and the ugly, this may seem like an understatement for most. As glasses are raised and fireworks explode into the sky, it’s important to recognize the special symbolism that the New Year brings.

A New Year is like a blank book, and the pen is in your hands… or the keyboard is ready at your fingertips. I know this past year has had its fair share of ups and downs – but good or bad, these experiences have shaped who we are today and who we will be in the future.  Wishing you 12 months of success, 52 weeks of laughter, 365 days of fun, 8,760 hours of joy, 525,600 minutes of good luck, and 31,536,000 seconds of happiness.

Yours in Service, Lindsay
