You can say thank you or even try it in another language to let the person know—I mean it, todah rabah. Words, however powerful, can often be like a present without wrapping paper or a bow and a card that would have the recipient know—I took the time. So I want to try and wrap these words and say Todah Rabah to our staff and Board for working behind the scenes and having us run as smoothly as we do.
We have 15 classes a week now; well over 100 students a week come to classes and that is a lot to keep track of let alone be thinking how do we grow and evolve, how do we build a better community, and how responsive are we to your feedback. Please keep in mind that all of our staff is part-time (or at least paid part-time) and our Board is volunteer and yet, as I hope is evident, we have your interests and each others in mind.
We also work by consensus (most of the time) and so even something as ‘simple’ as serving coffee and tea had a sub-committee! But the coffee and tea are in the kitchen, so enjoy.
Please, do let us know when we are doing things well (and of course how we can improve) and suggest to us how you would like to be a part of our community and what you want us to provide.
