Making EveryDayMatter at the Arlington Pet Expo

I have had my greyhounds now for 3 years.  I found out soon after adopting my first greyhound that the whole greyhound community of volunteers comes with.  I volunteer regularly and have done a variety of tasks and attended several events over the last 3 years.

This year for my EveryDayMatters day I volunteered to bring an adoptable dog to the Arlington Pet Expo.  It is an all-breed event with rescue groups, breeders, vendors, entertainment and anything and everything else you could think of.

Reflections on Connections

“Together, we can positively impact the lives of more than 25 million people. We at Netsmart rise each day passionate about this opportunity.”

The assertion above can be found in the “about us” section of the Netsmart company Web Site. Can you guess which word is most important to us? Passion is certainly up there. Opportunity? Yes, we believe in seizing it. But it’s “people” that are at the core of who we are. And that’s what stood out at Connections 2014 – our annual conference with clients that was held this year in Anaheim. Continue reading Reflections on Connections

A nice time for reflection… Out of the Darkness Walk KC!

2014-10-04 11.46.30

I think the thing that struck me the most is how sad it is that there were so many people there.  The fact that there are that many people that have been impacted by suicide is heartbreaking…and some of those folks were impacted multiple times.  Except for the high winds, it was a very beautiful day and the walk around the park was very serene.  A nice time for reflection.  Continue reading A nice time for reflection… Out of the Darkness Walk KC!
