Bonjourno friends! Well it looks like it is officially fall. The rain doesn’t seem to want to stop! I want to thank all of the volunteers who have been putting in so much hard work over the past couple weeks! Let’s keeper going! #goodworkteam #yourallwinnersinmybook #I’veneverwonanything #sigh. Oh!!!! I almost forgot to tell you all. This week Troy was recognized for his outstanding volunteer work with CRIS at the first annual Community Leader Awards. We are extremely lucky to have him as our boss man and president! This organization literally couldn’t run without his amazing efforts and continued support! Congrats Troy and I’m so glad you got the opportunity to be recognized for all your work! Not only did Troy receive an award, our very own Mary received an award as well! Great work Mary…you are an amazing advocate and asset to CRIS. Once again congrats you two for amazing work! Be sure to check out the Capital News on October 2 (or a date right around then as I can’t remember for sure) to see the full articles and write-ups on Troy and Mary!
