On behalf of our PNWAER Board we would like to say thank you for another wonderful fiscal year. We have endured so much this last year but through it all your passion, curiosity and commitment have remained true. Our world is better for having you in it and we hope you take a moment to witness yourself and all that you have accomplished this past year.
We are looking forward to next year and hope you will join us once again for mixers, conferences, and more! We would like to leave you with this poem.
The Starfish Story
“One day a man was walking along the beach when he noticed a boy picking something up and gently throwing it in the ocean. Approaching the boy, he asked, “What are you doing?”, “Throwing starfish back into the ocean. The surf is up and the tide is going out. If I don’t throw them back, they’ll die.” “Son,” the man said, “Don’t you realize there are miles and miles of beach and hundreds of starfish? You can’t make a difference!” After listening politely, the boy bent down, picked up another starfish, and threw it back into the surf. Then, smiling at the man he said. “I made a difference for that one.”
Thank you for making a difference each day. Have a wonderful summer and we will see you next year!
