Dear Debbie’s members. This is what I posted on our directors forum, and feel the time is right to announce it.
Dear fellow director’s and friends, I feel that this is the right time for me step down as a director of our wonderful foundation. It has been a long and difficult decision, but my mind is made up. Usually by this time of year I am starting to plan our next trip to the D.R., and am madly trying to obtain donations for the Fiesta. This year it’s just not there, I just do not have the energy and excitement, I even found myself saying to Nenita that maybe we should give the D.R. a rest for a while and budget permitting visit other destinations.
I also have to give my window and door business more attention, the owner has made supplier and company policy decisions that I do not agree with, so I will have to work harder to even maintain last years level and hopefully increase it. I also have an opportunity for increased hours at Honda. Along with this I have a few medical issues that will remain with Nenita and I, no not my knees anymore they are fine. I also feel that the time is right for new blood at the directors level, and we have done well in that regard adding Bryan and John. I know they will add allot to the foundation.
We will continue to support the foundation in any way possible, attending fiesta’s, and gathering donations. If we do not vacation to the D.R. on any given year I will contact you as to who I can meet up with and they can take them on their trip, weight permitting.
I hope you all understand my decision, and want you to know that I have truly enjoyed every minute working with you all over the last 7-8 years, and will continue to in a lesser role.
