Mid-Willamette Valley May Marketing Update

Last month our team supported the Alzheimer's Association fundraiser and helped raise $60,000 for the "Memories in the Making" Art Therapy program. Thank you to all who supported the event. Although the event was held in Portland, the program is currently active in Salem, Bend, Junction City, Albany, Grants Pass and many more sites across the state. As much as we love a reason to get dressed up and celebrate, it is important to stay connected to the cause and with the community we love and support. Community is an important value to our Retirement Connection team and look forward to growing involvement with each of you.

The Essence of Survival

"Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed...every morning a lion wakes up. It knows it must outrun the slowest gazelle or it will starve to death. It doesn't matter whether you are a lion or a gazelle...when the sun comes up, you'd better be running."- Successories  

Everyday I way up, hoping to be the Lion. Sometimes I am, but not always. My days are more successful when I am proactive in managing my schedule and look a bit into the week or month, instead of reactionary when my schedule begins to get the best of me. I hope on the days when I am the gazelle- that I go quickly and peacefully. -Amy
