As a 5013C nonprofit organization, we are required by our by-laws, to have an annual board meeting at which time there is a “State of the Union Address”. The annual address is an opportunity for us to look back at what we have accomplished and to look forward to new ideas and projects which will help us fulfill and support our mission statement. Last night was our annual meeting at which time I gave the address which included some highlights of what we have done. The board felt that some of this would be nice to share with you all here on Facebook and our website.
So just a few points that might be interesting to you all and of course all of this is a result of your incredible support of Seymour Pink!
