Happy New Year!
I think a fresh start is something needed by so many people and start with a positive outlook.
I am elated to say that the nominations for the Community Asset Awards was the best since the event started years ago. We have more nominations for youth and higher totals than we have ever.
C’YA, the LANL Foundation and the LACDC will look forward to the Jan. 21 event and I believe almost all of the notifications have taken place…with the exception of a few people needing to return to work to find out. Truth be told, there was one person nominated with just a first name and an address,
We have individuals, couples, clubs, businesses and our youngest is a fifth-grader. Remember this is a project that is open year long, so once we hold the event in January, the nomination process will begin again.
I have heard a number of people saying they won’t be making any resolutions this year, what’s the point?
I say, there’s always something you can do to be better or make the world better and often you can do such small things that make a big different.
My first hope is for folks to join the Assets movement! This isn’t just some neat, fun idea of mine, this is based on decades of research, shown to improve so many areas of life for young people.
