“It’s not enough that we do our best; sometimes we have to do what is required”
I want to extend my sincere gratitude to club member Doug Barrett who is the owner of Mid-State Litho, Inc. Doug graciously agreed to host the first indoor DCPHC meeting/event we have held since February 2020. It was an opportunity for all who attended to tour MSL, demo the equipment on the showroom floor and to hear first-hand from Doug about his passion for our industry and the value proposition that MSL brings to market every day.
As we continue to navigate through the effects of the COVID 19 pandemic we must stay vigilant in our efforts to remain healthy and safe; because of the rising case counts and the appearance of new variants the board of directors had to make the difficult decision of postponing our 100 Year Gala that was scheduled for December 9th. We have rescheduled the event for Thursday, February 17th please stay tuned for more information.
On November 30th several of our board members participated in the SWWC (Career and Tech Center) Open House & Business Showcase hosted by Saline High School. Our club sponsored a booth at the event showcasing the graphic communications industry, our member companies and the many career opportunities that are available. I also had the privilege to speak to the students and parents about the significant role print has in our everyday lives including: packaging, labeling, communicating health instructions and providing safety related materials. I also talked about why it is so important for them to consider career opportunities that exist for employment regardless of whether they are in high school, post high school with a certificate, have a 2 year degree or a 4 year degree. All in all, I think we did a wonderful job educating the students and their parents on the many career paths that we have to offer and the importance of them being filled with what I hope to be our next generation of leaders.
A very “BIG” thank you to our Board of Directors...they are continuing to do a marvelous job of keeping our club relevant during these transitional times.
Finally, May the holiday spirit be with you and your family today and throughout the New year.
