Thank You Notes – Part I

At the recent World Conference, Dave Worster, gave an inspiring and emotional speech as he accepted the lifetime achievement award. Dave is familiar to many in our chapter as he is a past President of IEAPA and was the opening speaker and a presenter at one of our March Conferences. He then became one of our chapter members and maintined membership for several years.  The NC chapter helped provide financial support for Dave and his wife Karen to attend the Orlando conference and receive his award. Dave suffered a debilitating stroke, which has left him blind and impaired.  He sent the following message to express his gratitude for the support he got to make it to the conference: 

Dear friends and colleagues,

I want to say thank you to each one of you

for helping Karen and I get to the EAPA

Conference in Orlando this year … it would

not have happened without your generous

donations.  It was wonderful to be there, to

enjoy the opportunity to visit with so many

of you and, of course, to receive the Lifetime

Achievement Award. This is an award I will

truly cherish, as it comes from those who

have been there and know what it takes. My

best wishes for the future.

Take care and be well,

Also at the World Conference, our friend and chapter member Lucy Henry was installed as the new IEAPA President. Another familiar face and someone who has been regularly involved in our chapter events, Maria Lund, was recognized as the Member of the Year. Our chapter recognized Lucy and Maria’s achievements by sending flowers to their homes. What follows are their words of appreciation sent to me to be shared with the North Carolina Chapter:

Thanks!!! (email)
Hi Paul,

WOW! What a delight to have beautiful flowers delivered from the NC Chapter. They are gorgeous and have made me feel so special and honored. You guys are such a class act.

Thank you so much!!!


And a card from Lucy which read:

Dearest NC EAPA Family,
Thank you so much for the beautiful flowers you sent upon my installation as EAPA President. It is an honor and a privelege for me to say that the NC Chapter is my home chapter.
Thank you for your encouragement and support in my new role. I hope to see you in December.
My best – Lucy
