I’m heading out to my old stomping grounds in Kentucky later this month. If you know me at all, you know nothing makes me happier than going home to do some work and to see family and good friends.
A big highlight will involve a visit to my alma mater, Eastern Kentucky University in Richmond, and being inducted into EKU’s Hall of Distinguished Alumni. It’s a great honor and somehow one I know I wouldn’t have received if it hadn’t been for the people who supported me back then and the ones who support me today (that means you Dr. Adams and Kathy!).
After that, I’ve got a few business trips, a few family outings and even a horse show lined up over the rest of the summer. The biggest thing on my calendar, though, is my retirement next fall after 30+ great years with Woodmen of the World. It will be hard leaving, but I’m so proud of our entire Field and Home Office team and know that the organization will be in very capable hands.
With the busy months ahead, I’ve decided this will be my final Danny’s Desk update. Thanks to all of you who’ve read what I had to say here. I’ve enjoyed staying connected with all of you and sharing everything from the super fraternal work that’s happening to what we are working on here in the Home Office. If you’ve got any final thoughts for me (or just suggestions on how Kathy can keep me out her hair after I retire), leave me a comment below.
