2nd VP Dan: An Update

Goodbye 2020! Welcome 2021. Who would have ever thought that our world would change so much this past year, and where will 2021 bring us?

2020 was the year of Zoom! I am not a fan! While I must admit this is a great way to get things done and see everyone, I still prefer in person. It has also enabled us to have more meetings, not only the Board, but also District Presidents, Nests Presidents and other Officers. Our Board of Directors will also be meeting this year in their sub-Committees done with Zoom.

We already know that our second phase of the National Convention is postponed until 2022. National is moving forward and still planning many of our regular 2021 events. Some of them will be in the fall instead of spring or summer. By now, states have started the vaccine shots and many people have received them. Our lives are slowly trying to get back to some kind of normal.

Just on a personal note, I am a grandfather again with the birth of my first granddaughter, Abigail (already a Falcon Member!). She joins the family with her two brothers, Chase and Jack. My son Josh and his wife Erica will be busy with these three! High school basketball season finally started here in Connecticut. After a lot of debate, the season was placed on hold in November and now started in mid-January. This season will be cut almost in half with a limited schedule. My daughter Mallorie has joined the coaching staff this year. For years our staff coached against hers, but she’s now back home in the high school she played for.

While this pandemic is still going on, please everyone and your families stay safe and healthy. Hopefully we all get through this soon.

Czolem!
