A Message From Your President
It would seem that Punxsutawney Phil may have been right this year. Even though there has been record breaking cold temperatures lately most of us agree that is has been a very good winter for work outside. Not having to dig out the jobsite daily is always a plus.
As we look forward to spring we have a few events to announce.
March 25th we will be putting on a 6 credit Contractor Continuing Education Day at the Newbold Town Hall. Tammy will be sending out the details of registration in the coming days. The event does have a capacity limit so please return registration as soon as you can. Remember that if you cannot attend there are options for online instruction to attain your credits.
Today Sam and I met with Mike Boyd at the Hodag Sports Club to iron out details of the 1st Annual Sporting Clays shoot May 21st. This was my first time to the club and I was impressed with the venue and look forward to a fun day of camaraderie.
As a board we are also looking into putting on a virtual parade of homes this year. Another association did this last year due to COVID and said they will not be going back to the standard walk through version as in the past because it was such a success. If this is something that you may be interested in please reach out to a board member so we have a sense of interest.
Stay warm, stay healthy.
A Message From Your President
Happy New Year everyone! I hope over the holidays you were able to relax, recharge, and reconnect with friends and family.
This past year is one that none of us will ever forget as much as we may try. We found a booming economy come to a sudden halt. We had schools close with little notice. We saw historically sound businesses shutter. And sadly many lost friends and loved ones. This all due to the sudden onset of COVID-19. Fortunately even with all the bad out there I’ve spoken with many of our members and they have been able to weather much of the storm and have been moving their businesses forward as close to normal as allowed.
Many of you never heard of Zoom in April and now have participated in more than you would like to admit. As much as technology can help and be a bridge there is no substitute for traditional in-person interaction and a good old fashioned hand shake in my opinion. That is why the HBA Board has been conducting normal monthly meetings as allowed to plan and help guide our association out of the COVID-19 world we are still in. To help us gauge the interest in offering an in-person Continuing Education Day I ask you to please answer the 1 question poll near the end of the newsletter. Right now we are coordinating with speakers and have reserved the Woodruff Town Hall on March 25th to offer 6 credits of CE.
Thank you all who donated cash, food and other items for the Rhinelander Food Pantry and Frederick Place making it such a success this year.
I am grateful for your continued support and commitment to the Headwaters Builders Association. You are to credit for the successes of our association and the WBA. Good luck with all those new year resolutions out there!
