Issue 118, March 27

Last week we welcomed Chris Hand who spoke to us about the power of citizenship and what the government’s response to its citizens should be. We, as citizens, should make representatives care through civic and citizenship involvement. He spoke on the importance of education in the classroom and that there is more to education than just memorizing the structure of government. It’s how we use our skills to make the government work for us.
It is beneficial to come together on important issues and implement them to benefit everyone rather than be partisan. Mr. Hand finished with a story on how, through persistence and perseverance, things can and will change. Also, one of the most important things that we as citizens can do today is schedule a meeting with our representatives and let them know what important issues are facing us today.
I would like to thank Apollo Packaging and Crushr for co-hosting a great Meet-A-Member event last Thursday. The rain managed to subside and everyone had a great time. Thank you to those who also exhibited and helped support our club.
Come out next week when Chris Oakley, Vice President and Regional Executive at Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta – Jacksonville Branch will be presenting to us. See you Wednesday.
