Salem June Marketing Update

Summer is almost here and we are excited about our current projects. We have received a grant from Legacy Hospitals and have been helping the case managers clean up their database making it the most accurate and efficient tool to connect the community with the care and services they need.

Memories in the Making Art Action & Gala was a huge success and we would like to thank everyone who participated. The same is true of the Parkinson's Resources of Oregon Cirque de Hope Gala. Your generosity has made an outstanding contribution possible. Our staff was proud to support these and other community events and hope you do the same.

Nugget of Knowledge 

Good is the enemy of Great!
- and that is one of the key reasons why we have so little that becomes great. - Jim Collins (from the book, Good to Great)


I see people and business settle for "doing a good job", when a great job was very possible and achievable. It is hard to push forth with the extra effort when good seems to be an acceptable standard. Push yourself to find greatness. Greatness in performance, in resources, in technology, in communication, in follow through. Don't settle on being good when great is possible. -Amy
