I hope that Fall has provided a fruitful harvest for all of you as you endeavor to improve the lives of your families, clients, and community. We are continuing the work that we are charged to do as an organization. We have continued work on the Habitat for Humanity Build for the deserving family. We are making plans to give back to our local schools through the Holiday Project. Look out for information on the Holiday Party. We are planning to have a fantastic event raising money for NC Legal Aid. We are appreciative of our members, and we value each one of you. Thank you to Guilford County Recovery Courts who served as our October 2022 Member Meeting Guest Speaker. For those in attendance, I am sure that each of you were deeply impacted by the speakers, including the success stories provided by past and current recovery court clients. We are better as a community because Guilford County has provided an alternative service for recovery for those in need of substance abuse treatment and mental health treatment services who happen to have interaction with the criminal justice system. As we continue to fulfill our mission, I hope each of you will consider joining or assisting a committee. The focus for this year is both community and wellness. Through our projects and initiatives, I hope that we can continue to improve the profession and our community. I look forward to seeing each of you at the November 2022 member meeting!
