Enote 107 – Passing the Torch

October 6, 2014

Dear Friends,

The time has come for Liz and me to say Goodbye. We have handed in our resignations as Treasurer and Director to Dianne Becker, Chair of our Board of Trustees, effective at the end of this calander year. I hasten to add that the Brackett Refugee Education Fund will still exist, and our work for refugees in Asia will be continued by our trusteesLiz and Tom. Liz and I do hope you will continue your valuable support to them.

Liz and I have thought about this transition for a number of years, and we have been very reluctant to take this step. But each passing day confirms us in our view that this was the right move at the right time.

If you are on our mailing list, you should have already received an invitation to our "Passing the Torch Celebration", if not you are still invited. The party is this Sunday October 12, at 3:00pm at the Colgate Inn in Hamilton.

Please come; you will have the chance to meet all the new leaders of BREF, and we'd love to see you.

PS: This is not really Goodbye. I'm sure you will hear from us again. Perhaps another enote or two announcing new ventures, or good news.

                                Best Wishes to all,


Your day is not finished until you've done someone a favor.
