President's Message May 2014

Spring is finally upon us! And how glad we all are for that!

The snow days this winter presented us with challenges to overcome in our workplaces and homes. The importance of safety in all actions was seen and emphasized through the hazardous road and driving conditions and ice-related storm damage to tress and buildings. We can all agree that a moment taken include safety into a risk assessment can make all the difference in mission accomplishment.

Our 2014 SAME program schedule was understandably impacted to some degree as well. But, this summer we have three social events in the works and will be sharing these soon, stay tuned for a Fort Detrick SAME Picnic, another volunteer take over opportunity with "Alive at 5" on Carroll Creek and a Bike and Brew event to first bike the Frederick "flats" and later meet up for a local brewery tour!

Looking ahead- in September, we will announce the Fort Detrick SAME Post Scholarship Competition Award winners at our monthly program and be sure to mark your calendars for our ever popular Golf Outing and Fundraising Event in October. This is sure to be another sold out day of fun to gather and network in Frederick. For the past three years we have consecutively exceeded our goals with our fundraising for scholarships, which comes from our Golf Outing. Please consider helping us to do so again this year save the date for Golf at Clustered Spires, Friday October 17!

Have a safe and pleasant summer!
