The Get Together
Dearest Cathy and Colleagues of The Get Together:
Today, I received a message from Cathy, announcing the launch of the 9th Season of The Get Together. This is such an exciting announcement for everyone involved in this amazing venture. It has been one of the greatest honors of my life being involved with each of you in this group.
A ‘truck-load’ of kudos to all. It is rare indeed to bring together so many people moving in the same direction with absolutely no personal agenda, but to solely offer their help to those in need. Then to see those who once reached out and up, seeking just a bit of help, to get them through just one more day, week or month, who now join us to give back…pulling the next one up and along a new pathway.
You have brought “Miles of Smiles” to those who believed there was no reason to smile. You are wonderful. I will take these memories and experiences with me, as I too take the next steps in my life. It is with such sadness that I must remove myself from the roles of this great organization. Yet, the excitement of a new venture brings with it wonderful challenges.
My wife has been recruited and has accepted the position of “Global Communications Director” for one of the largest companies in the world. Within the next few weeks, we will be leaving our beloved Houston, Texas after 25 incredible years, and moving to another area we love, the forests of Michigan, where we have a beach house that has been in the family for nearly 75 years. MonMark Group will continue to function, on a global scale, as well.
When settled, I will be seeking to participate in another “Get Together” type organization. If one does not exist, I will launch one, in your honor. Ladies and Gentlemen of The Get Together @ The Barn, thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for the honor and privilege of knowing and serving alongside you. I have learned so much.
