I could say so many things about my first year. And since so many of you have told me how much you love reading my newsletters from top to bottom, I thought about doing a 3-part series recapping the last year. However, in the end I realized there is a quote from Maya Angelou that sums it all up.

"People will forget what you said, they will forget what you did, but they will never forget how you made them feel."

You have all made me feel so welcome and loved this first year. Through my firsts and my flubs (yes there will still be more!) you have laughed with me, supported me and shown why this Chamber community is so strong. I am honored and proud to serve our business community and have loved being a part of the great things we all do for Lakeville and I look forward to what is yet to come. Year two...here we go!
