I hope you are enjoying "spring" or as my fiancé likes to call it "winter number 2". I just keep telling myself that I can handle the rain and even snow and cold temperatures now, as long as I have sunshine and warm weather at the end of June for my outdoor wedding. Wish me luck! At this rate, I need lots of it.
Unfortunately I was not able to attend the spring conference on Quality Tools, but I am confident that it was an excellent training opportunity for those that did attend. Woody Santy, one of our own board members put on the whole event. He always does a fabulous job. Thanks, Woody, for all of your efforts.
The program year is winding down fast. We only have one more event planned for this program year. We will have the May event at a Timberattlers game. We have done this event several other times and always have a great turnout. We will have a short meeting and picnic at the stadium before the game and then we will all sit together in a special section to watch the game. It is a fun time. Sign up now. Space is limited. See www.asqsection1206.org for details.
The board is working on setting up events for the next program year. Please let a board member know if your company would be interested in hosting a tour. We are always looking for local businesses to tour.
If you are interested in becoming a board member for section 1206, please come to the next board meeting. I am sad to announce that we are losing one of our very involved and loyal board members due to a job change. Dave Wildner, who has held too many positions on our board to list, has accepted a position with John Deere. When I first heard this, I was really surprised to hear that he was leaving our section because John Deere is in Horicon. That's not so far. Unfortunately he has accepted a position with JD in Iowa, not Horicon. Now that commute would be a little too far.
However, he has agreed to continue to compile the newsletter for our Section, which is really going above and beyond. We wish Dave the best at his new opportunity but he will be greatly missed by our board members. Good luck, Dave!
