“Our Business is Your Business”
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”
~ Margaret Mead
I had the pleasure of dining in the same room with ordinary citizens who do change the world every day. Last Thursday at the Crescenta Valley Chamber of Commerce Recognition Banquet, the room was filled with them. People like Mary O’Keefe who nurtures and cares for our youth every week at the Fire House and Robin Goldsworthy who has dedicated years to Prom Plus ensuring a safe after-prom celebration. Mike Baldwin not only gave years serving our country but also honors our veterans by being one of the volunteers who spearheaded the construction of the Two Strike Memorial Wall. There is also John Giblin who volunteers at our office every week and works tirelessly – with a smile. I was humbled to be in the presence of all the recipients. They’ve all given their lives to others! Then there is Jean Maluccio who organized the occasion with such style! It was a beautiful event!
