November 19, 2004 Chautauqua


From the Editor's Computer     

   Life is getting a little harried as I come to the end of another university course and begin working on the final project.  In the midst of that, I am also starting some projects at the library which need to be done by the end of the year.

   Also, we are approaching the time when Christmas parties, functions and shopping are coming up fast.  Remember...be responsible and look out for others.

   This year is rapidly drawing to a close.  I can’t believe how fast the days, weeks and months have been flying by.  Let us take a moment to breathe during this hectic time and reflect on the past year...on our accomplishments, on what we want to improve and on what direction we want our lives to go in the coming year.

November 5, 2004 Chautauqua


From the Editor's Computer     

   It is amazing what can be accomplished when everyone works together for a common goal...especially if the goal is going to help others.  The Hartel Benefit held last week is an excellent example of this.

   Businesses and individuals in the community joined forces and pulled together to make the special evening a night of fun, laughter, friendship, and support.  Each person did their part to make the evening a successful undertaking on all fronts.  Hats off to the organizers and everyone who was part of the Benefit evening.

   Rather than dwelling on what couldn't be done, or what they didn’t have, people looked at the possibilities and what they did have that they could share with others.  No one sat there and said, “This can’t be done” or “This will never work” or “We should just give up as this is too big an undertaking.”  No, participants gave and gave some more - giving support to a family in the community.

   The Hartel Benefit should be an example to all of us and our community organizations.  Anything CAN be done IF people care enough to do something.
