President’s Message May 2013

Supervisor McKay will cap off a busy and productive 2012-13 SCA season on May 21st at Crestwood Elementary. Social time starts at 7:00pm with business commencing at 7:30pm.  This season we have participated in many events and discussed varied topics, from the Veterans Bridge Walk and the tear-down of the old mall, to Campaign Night, National Night Out and the "Groper."  Your SCA led the way and partnered wherever we could to enhance the community's safety, viability and relevance in our evolving county.  Looking ahead the SCA will continue its standing dialog with the Supervisor's Office and our state representatives along with the business community.  Also, Springfield Days is fast approaching.  Look for opportunities to participate in one of the events directly or as a volunteer, e.g., the Springfield 15k/5k Road Race or the Cardboard Boat Regatta.  In autumn, the SCA is planning a program focused on gardening along with other events we think will keep you informed and enthused.  On a personal note, I wish to thank and acknowledge my fellow SCA Board members for their time and talents, as well as our Executive Committee members for making our success.  Together we all find ways to serve our greater community and keep the American spirit of volunteerism alive and well. So, come out in May to hear Jeff's news, and to be heard by Jeff.  We will have some door prizes to give away, and good cheer as well. 

Yours for Springfield,

Bruce Waggoner
