I am fortunate in that I work for a wonderful organization that does great things for thousands of families and children in our community. One of the most rewarding (and stressful) times of the year for our Spirit Committee, is when we pull together the final details for the Y’s annual fundraising campaign kickoff.
This year’s kickoff theme is centered around travel - We’re Going Places. The event venue will be filled with maps and globes, airline jargon, and vacation destination vignettes. I happily volunteered to work on the props for the French/Italian café street scene.
With all of the snow and cold weather we’ve been experiencing, who wouldn’t welcome thoughts of strolling through an outdoor market or relaxing at a bistro table while sipping wine and sampling bread and cheese?
So I say to myself and our committee, do as they would in France - relax, take a deep breath, it will all work out fine….. just like it does every year.
