Give Yourselves A Pat On The Back
 
We would like to sincerely THANK all RedSpoke volunteers, contributors and committee members for what turned into a very successful event.  I have received nothing but positive feedback on how this event came off and how adversity was managed.  The Thursday reshuffling was very well received and all the other days were perfect.   Great job everyone!
 
Jay will be letting us know the financial outcome in a few weeks after all bills and collections are in.
 
THANK YOU,

The Starfish Story 

 

 

A young man is walking along the ocean and 

sees a beach on which thousands and thousands 

of starfish have washed ashore.  Further along 

he sees an old man, walking slowly and 

stooping often, picking up one starfish after 

another and tossing each one gently into the 

ocean. 

 

“Why are you throwing starfish into the 

ocean?,” he asks. 

 

“Because the sun is up and the tide is going out 

and if I don’t throw them further in they will 

die.” 

 

“But, old man, don’t you realize there are miles 

and miles of beach and starfish all along it!  

You can’t possibly save them all, you can’t even 

save one-tenth of them.  In fact, even if you 

work all day, your efforts won’t make any 

difference at all.” 

 

The old man listened calmly and then bent 

down to pick up another starfish and threw it 

into the sea. “It made a difference to that one.”

 

. . . . . Just in case you were wondering

 THANK YOU FOR MAKING A DIFFERENCE
