Wow, another year is almost over! As we race to the end of 2016, I encourage you to reflect on the past year and celebrate all your major accomplishments. Be sure to include the successful ewiGras and Pecan sales in your reflections. Because of your hard work and dedication, we are able to provide a combined total of $11,600 to UTC, Chattanooga State, and Southern Adventist College! That is an amazing accomplishment that we can all be proud of!
December is our special meeting where we bring in our scholarship winners to tell us about themselves. Please be sure to register early. I would love to see every member at this meeting so the scholarship winners can feel our love and support.
Since we are hoping for a big crowd at this meeting, please be sure to bring extra items for the door prize table. The money we raise from it goes toward our administrative costs, including paying for our scholarship winners meals.
For those of you that are participating as a Secret Pal, your big Reveal is done at this meeting! We will have new Secret Pal forms available at the meeting for anyone who would like to participate next year. If you have any questions concerning how to be a Secret Pal, contact Nena Powell, who has graciously volunteered to be our Secret Pal chair this year.
As we continue into our holiday season with Christmas, take time to enjoy being with your families and friends. Even though the world around us continues to try and make this Holiday season into a “commercial” holiday, it is up to you to choose how to celebrate the real Reason for you Season!
Thank you for everything that you do to continue to support EWI of Chattanooga. I wish you all a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
Charlie Rosenquist, BCBS of TN
