PRESIDENT’S LETTER

Greetings Chicago Safety Pros!

I have a lot to share today but first, how was your Halloween? Here’s hoping you had a pleasant one with the weather finally normalizing for this time of year. Due to ‘Chicago weather’ of recently past Halloweens, my spouse and I have always been left with a surplus of sweets–but not this time!
As I mature (ironic, I know, given my choice of profile pic for this President’s Letter), I realize having a surplus of anything is reason to feel blessed. As the grand holiday season begins, I invite you to give your surplus time to this year’s Standdown for Homeless Veterans on November 16th with us. The Winter Standdown is a Department of Veterans Affairs initiative held in select cities where we can help distribute meals and sundries to homeless and/or disabled veterans. In spite of the short notice, I hope you can join us! If you’d like to learn more and to register, visit the link below.
