June/July Region 4 Website Message

Plato said “The beginning is the most important part of the work.”  Here we are, at a new beginning.  New leaders have been elected.  They are building their teams and developing plans for the future.  Past leaders are being supportive, passing on knowledge and encouraging growth in our program.  It’s an exciting time of the year!

I wish our outgoing District Directors (DD) luck in their future endeavors.  While each DD is unique and brought their own skills to the leadership role, every single one of them left their District stronger.  Please thank the outgoing District Directors:  D6 Diane Windingland, D19 Keith Nielsen, D24 Marian Gramlich, D42 Carolyn Kaldy, D64 Stan Penner, D78 Anita Monek and D99 Lorraine Wheatley.  They are an amazing leadership team!  It was my pleasure to work with them over the past year.

I also want to welcome our incoming DD’s.  They have big shoes to fill but I have seen them in action.  They are up for the challenge!  Please welcome our newest DD’s in Region 4: D6 Harold Osmundson, D19 Jeanne Heil, D24 George Volz, D42 John Bauer, D64 Sheryl Poirier, D78 Karl Merbach and D99 Don Zurakowski.  I can’t wait to see what their talent does for all our members!

Now it’s time for me to say goodbye.  It has been my honor to support your leaders and you for the past two years as your Region Advisor.  The talent we have in our Region is admiring.  Keep growing.  Keep showing your strengths.  Keep doing what you are doing.  You are what makes Region 4 strong and a force to be reckoned with.

You are in good hands with our International Director, Monique Levesque-Pharoah and our Region Advisor Pat Hannon.  Continue doing what you do.  This new beginning is your most important work.


Kelly Nielsen
Region 4 Advisor 2015-2017
