Shari Doidge told me . . . Barbara Kuhlke told me . . . Oma Conn told me . . . They all told me that being your Chapter President would be fun – I just did not expect it to be this much fun. And the reason? It's all because of YOU! When I think of this past year and contemplate the many wonderful events, meetings, members, and volunteers, a melody goes through my mind. Remember the Bill Medley & Jennifer Warnes song? Most of you will remember it from the movie "Dirty Dancing." Now, I've had the time of my life No, I never felt like this before [Come on, sing along with me] Yes, I swear it's the truth And I owe it all to you 'Cause I've had the time of my life All because of YOU! Many of you have shared your senti- ments with me during this past year, so I know I am not alone. In fact, I am confident that each and every member who volunteered for a leadership role in the Chapter or participated in Chapter activities in one capacity or another had the time of their lives too! That's not the only lesson to be learned from "Dirty Dancing," though. It showed me that in order to succeed, all you need is someone to believe in you. You did that when you elected me as your President. Likewise, I realized that to enjoy the dance, all I needed to do was to place one foot in front of the other and move to the rhythm. And what a rhythm we have in our Chapter! Henry Ford once said: Coming together is a beginning. Staying together is progress. Working together is success. Thank you, ALL, for coming together, staying together and working together for the success of the Dallas Chapter ALA. Thank you for believing in me. Thank you for helping set the rhythm for our Chapter. But most of all, thank you for inviting me to the Dallas Chapter ALA dance. I've had the time of my life! I have enjoyed every minute of my time spent being your Dallas Chapter President. THIS MONTH "Now, THAT Was Fun!
