My goodness, so much has happened since our July General Membership meeting. My emotions have been run amuck with Hurricane Harvey; the now infamous Hurricane Irma with Hurricane Jose’ on her heals and to our South Hurricane Katia. We have been very Blessed this hurricane season to date and pray we all stay safe for the remainder of this season. I hope the meeting in July was helpful in giving you important information in order to prepare for this very active hurricane season. May we all continue to pray for all of those affected by these terrible storms and continue to donate generously to the cause.
We would like to thank Robert Greene and his staff with Jefferson Parish EOC for his excellent presentation. He presented visual outlines on the large screen and prepared a stack of excellent handouts. Many thanks to Home Depot and there staff for putting together an outstanding presentation about hurricane preparedness. Thanks to Home Depot Manager Jackie Springer and employee Jack Strain for giving their time to educate us on supplies needed. Timothy Myers of Lightning Services, Inc. spoke about generator safety and shared some very valuable safety tips that I was unaware of. We thank him very much for his professional experience. Thanks to all of the members in attendance, your support inspires us to work even harder..
