Dr. Worsley's Wise Words
As we enter into the height of autumn and peak fall foliage with trees in their vibrant orange, red and yellows we find Thanksgiving upon us. Thanksgiving always lends way to feelings of gratitude and this year there are many. I am thankful for family and our many shared memories. To be able to serve in my role in Chesterfield County, I am fortunate to see the impact our human services departments have on the everyday life of our residents. It is my goal to continue to promote and share our services throughout the community. I am also thankful for our non-profit partners. Monthly, our Non-Profit Collaborative meets to share ideas and connect, it is inspiring to hear of the work they do in Chesterfield and around our region. In just one example, CCHASM Alliance for Social Ministry will hold their annual Thanksgiving Meal Program later this month that serves thousands of meals to assist families in our region. We all have so much to be thankful for in this month of gratitude.

Chesterfield County Celebrates Customer Service Week
Customer Service Week is an international celebration of the importance of customer service and of the people who serve and support customers on a daily basis. Chesterfield County celebrated the week October 4-8 with a variety of activities. Learning and Performance Center offered two virtual classes focused on service and provided a Customer Service Challenge quiz. Over 100 employees took the quiz, and ten lucky winners received a $10 gift card to Starbucks! Employees were encouraged to volunteer during the week. The highlight of the week was the fresh, delicious donuts provided by Mrs. Yoders.
