Hello Courageous Steps Supporters & Volunteers,
It has been a busy month of October, full of exciting ventures for the future of our organization!
We had the pleasure of receiving a donation from the Eastern Maine Bass Club through an event they did earlier this month. Their donation of $1,000, will help our new Unified Sports program!
This past weekend, we hosted our first ever Costumes & Cocktails event at the Morgan Hill Event Center. We had a turnout of over 200 people, and lots raised for our growing organization! We are looking forward to next year’s event already, set for Friday October 23rd from 8pm-12am.
We have been making some changes within our organizational structure this month. This includes naming Heather Martin as our new events chair for The Courageous Steps Project. Heather has been deeply involved within our organization’s endeavors, and this move will allow us to grow for years to come!
Our former board chair, Jay Martin, delivered his resignation message to the board of directors during the October 2019 board meeting. His resignation was based on personal reasons that we will not disclose, in respect of his family. Myself, and our board of directors, are beginning the process of filling this important role, and will hopefully have a decision by the end of this year/early next year!
Coming up for the rest of the year is our Thanksgiving Crockpot Challenge on Sunday November 17th from 3:30pm-5:30pm at the Old Town Recreation Center. $15 to enter your crockpot, and $5 for additional ones (can only enter a limit of 3). Supporters are encouraged to come out and eat with us as well. See the actual event for more details!
Courageous Steps will once again be at the OTES Holiday Bazaar on Saturday December 7th from 9am-2pm selling Yankee Candle products. Come see us, and choose your perfect holiday gifts!
Planning for next year is underway, with several new exciting events being launched, as well as expansion of programs. I am excited to share that all with you in the next couple of months.
If you have any questions in the meantime, please email me directly at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your continued support!
Connor J. Archer, Founder & CEO/Executive Director
