Toward the end of the meeting, we were reviewing the Council Strategic Plan. To my surprise, the Council Executive said we needed to add something about working with charter partners in the updates. So, I thought, he really was paying attention the other night at the District Roundtable, when I shared some home truths about this. Then, to my even greater surprise, the Council President called on me to explain what I had told them at the Roundtable. Well, that launched me into a full-bore presentation on charter partners supported by my quickie chart. In the end, the Board voted to create a Relationships Committee.
Full credit to the Council Key Three for actually listening. There may be hope of accomplishing something in our Council in this area. I am very happy about that, and will support it as much as I can. It's been a long time coming. I am reminded of a poster Deanne had on her dorm room wall in college, whose caption read, "God, striking wet matches in the dark, finally finds one that lights."
