As I mentioned last week, it seems that Erie is the place to be! On October 24, John and I attended the Nest 610 Awards Dinner. I have attended this numerous times and am always amazed at the attendance.
One year, we were on our way to Myrtle Beach. The best is the time I was in Connecticut for an event. I had rented a car and they had given me a Buick LeSabre which I considered to be a “pappap’ car. Well, I was wrong! That car was great! As I drove to the airport in Hartford on Sunday morning, between the leaves and the car, I found myself in Massachusetts. I quickly realized my error and turned around. When we flew out, it was true what I have always heard about autumn in New England. The colors were magnificent. I had a layover in Washington, DC. Again, enjoying the fall foliage as we took off. I landed in the burg, drove up to Erie (yet again enjoying the leaves!) and arrived at Nest 610. A bit late, but they were fine with that as the Steelers were on.
Think about this, there is a cocktail hour, dinner and an awards presentation! Every year, there are so many who come to socialize, thank and acknowledge those who work for the good of the Polish Falcons, specifically Nest 610!
This year is so unique as we all know. Last year, there were no dinners, gatherings or celebrations. I understand the Legion of Honor recipients received their awards as they were delivered by Tony (Pol).
The Star of Merit folks had to wait until the awards dinner. What is so impressive about that is that even though Members did not receive their awards last year, they still gave their all for the golf tournament (and I am sure other events as well!).
That speaks volumes! Just goes to show that while Members do appreciate their awards, they give because of their love for the organization. A huge thank you to all of you!
It takes a tremendous amount of work and dedication to nurture, lead, cultivate and manage a Nest, especially one with a building. I would like to thank all the Nest 610 Officers and Members who make Nest 610 a success!
Hopefully, this trip was the beginning of Nest visits!
