As the first Spring flowers come up, it’s a good time to think about nurturing our relationships. See Nancy Gold’s “Whose Feelings Are Hurt…Yours or Mine?” Spring is also a good time to explore new things. See “What Can You Learn From Looking At A Rose?” by Barbara Lerner-Linder about our new Mindfulness Special Interest Group. Check out restaurant and travel suggestions in “Highly Recommended” and see what TTNers have been up to in “Did You Miss These?” .

Question: When and how should you offer advice? Never? Very carefully? To close friends only? To everyone whenever you feel like it? (The last question, only kidding). Sometimes we feel compelled to make a comment, to help someone else BUT under the heading of “No good deed goes unpunished” that “helpful opinion” may come back at you in the form of unintended hurt feelings.

Member Survey Fact #1:
TTNers Volunteer 600 Hours a Month

Community Impact: Did you know that more than 6 in 10 members donate their experience and skills as volunteers? And, that 3 in 10 volunteer weekly. This comes to almost 600 hours of volunteering each month. The total number of hours could be as high as 1500 each month if this rate of volunteerism is true among all our members. Add to that the hours of members who volunteer occasionally.

TTN members are strengthening local non-profits and having a positive impact on our community --- keep up the good work!

244 members participated in the 2018 Member Survey. Thank you! This is an impressive level of participation. 

Watch for more Survey Facts coming soon…
