During the thanksgiving and holiday season, it is natural for many of us to consider all those things for which we are thankful. As we reflect on our recent 50th Anniversary Gala, we are thankful for not only those who were honored for the incredible gifts and support they have provided over the history of the organization, but for all who have supported Hollis Adams in what they may have considered was even the smallest way.
As I was originally becoming acquainted with Hollis Adams, I was frankly surprised that an organization of its size would have survived as long as it had. Over the years, I came to understand what Hollis Adams is all about and why it works. It then made perfect sense that the organization has not only survived, but may be as healthy as it has ever been. At the core of why Hollis Adams is successful is its mission and the people Hollis Adams serves. It is because the mission is worthy that Hollis Adams continues to thrive. So let’s be thankful for the people that make Hollis Adams worthwhile, our participants; for the friendships, love, joy and laughter they bring to our worlds and allow us to share.
