President's Message

Make a Difference Day? One day of the year, October 25, selected by the media to encourage people everywhere in this nation to volunteer their time to make a positive difference in someone else's life. That day approaches and in its wake stories are told and written of the great deeds that an individual or group accomplished. Can we also focus on another day that has far greater potential impact on everyone's life?

In November we face the real Make a Difference Day, Election Day. Every adult has an opportunity to cast a vote to elect our government representatives. Corporations, media, and individuals weigh in with their opinions. Television ads reflect the images that each candidate portrays. Most people will state their choice if asked. But will everyone act on their choice by marking a ballot?

To maintain a democracy, it is imperative that people vote. Many lament that their vote doesn't make a difference. If we don't vote, we don't get a choice. Each vote is vital to Make a Difference. Spread the word, tell your family, friends, and neighbors to vote, so we all can make a difference come November.
