As I was thinking about my message for the month, I was also planning our families Thanksgiving menu, reflecting on Thanksgivings past, friends, family, successful and sometimes disastrous meals (don't get me started on carving a turkey). My thoughts turned to all that I'm thankful for, and I began to think about all that I'm thankful for at SFCP.
I am grateful to the dedicated staff who have worked so hard to ensure the success of our programs. I am grateful to Jeff Miller for so much, not the least of which was helping us move into our new neighborhood and building. I am very grateful to Beth Schecter, the Interim Executive Director who came to work at our complicated place and with a steady hand has kept us on track and open for business. I am especially grateful to Aaron Chow, Laura Ingram, Lynda Connelly, Tia Perrot and Eric Rosen who stepped up and did an amazing job as they began what had to be a very difficult transition. They have all worked very hard to fill the gaps between the departure of Jeff and the arrival of Beth. With grace and commitment, the Staff have all made sure that our Center could carry on and we have done so with nary a hitch.
