Message from the President - June 2022Category: Message From The President
With war in Ukraine, mass shootings, and natural disasters of fires, floods, and major storms, is it no wonder that we haven’t paid attention to where time has gone? We’re already at the middle of another year and it flew by so rapidly. It is hard to believe that we’ve been in our new offices now for one year.
At PRO, time always seems to fly by because we are always so very busy helping new constituents, helping those who have been with us, finding new programs, tweaking old programs, but for years we’ve always slowed our public persona in June, July and August. Therefore, we’ll be doing that again this year by keeping all of our programs, but reducing their frequency. Check out the Calendar on the back page.
To the fathers of the world, HAPPY FATHER’S DAY.
