Dare to Dream with our new Board…

Below you will read the dreams that our new Board Members shared at the Installation (click here to see the new Board). Pat has chosen the theme, “Dream”. Keep reading to see what it stands for…

Quota Installation 2011 ~~ Dream Theme

 

The Cool Cats theme is: “I do my best because I have a dream.”

and, Walt Disney said: “If you can dream it, you can do it.”

 

Pat – President

 

I had a dream.  In it I returned home from China and became the recording secretary of Quota.
When I woke up, I got an e-mail from Kath Slagal asking me to be President – Elect.  SHE is the
recording secretary. Oops!  Now I have to have another dream.

C.S. Lewis said, “You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.

So, my new dream is an acronym:

D our dream is to donate our time to others
R our dream is to resonate and be heard
E our dream is to educate where we can
A our dream is to activate from within
M our dream is to motivate all to care

 

Kim – President Elect

“You may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one.  I hope someday you’ll join us and the world will be as one.” John Lennon

 

Kath Slagal – Recording Secretary (this is a poem written by her)

 

Dream

Can you dream?

Can you believe in the best of everyone?

Believe in a world of peace, love and giving of oneself?

Can you believe in a world without hatred, bitterness and smallness of character?

In a world where kindness and caring give respite and hope.

Can you believe that each small step can make a difference?

If you can do this, you believe in Quota.

 

Can you dream?

 

Phyllis – Treasurer

My dream is that this snow go away!!!!   My dream for Quota is for the chapter to continue to attract new members and those that are already Quotarians to  continue to support our events so that we can continue to be a small yet mighty club that can make a difference in our community.

Dance in the direction of your dreams…

If you want to build a ship, don’t drum up people to collect wood and don’t assign them tasks and work, but rather teach them to long for the endless immensity of the sea.”        -Antoine de Saint-Exupery

I know sometimes in my efforts to make things “easy” for people to volunteer, I’ve assigned tasks and work.  I know it’s much more effective to paint the vision and let people step up on their own.  And I know personally, I’m much more inspired by a painter.

So my dream for myself and for Quota is that we make creative use of our talents to paint the vision we want for Quota.  There’s no doubt that we have the talent to pull it off if when we decide on a direction.
