RECOGNITION
Thank You 2012 IE Chapter Patriots:
ET Water • Ewing Irrigation• LCIS, Inc.
We appreciate your continued support
of our CLCA Chapter
PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE
I
Feelin’ Blessed this Holiday
can’t help but feel blessed this
time of year. In the spirit of the
Holidays, I want to officially give
thanks for my blessings because
although Thanksgiving has passed, I
think we should be thankful all year
long. Of course, I thank God for the
well-being of my friends and family,
and the survival of my business. I am
RICHARD DAIGLE
thankful for the IE Board who show
Irrigator Tech
dedication and exceptional service
to our members and to the Green
Industry in general. I am thankful for all of the members
who have attended our events this year; they made my job
as President a lot easier. Lastly, I am thankful to be a part
of CLCA.
To have the opportunity to associate with others of similar
mind and goals is invaluable in sustaining in these tough
times. When you think about it, all of us in the Green
Industry are in the same boat right now. And the more
we gather together, work together, even play together…
the better chance we have of overcoming the adversity we
continue to face.
We are fast approaching the end of another year and if you
are reading this as a member who doesn’t typically attend
CLCA events, I encourage you to do so in 2013. You will
meet people who can be of great help in many areas of your
business and even personal life. You are missing out on these
great relationship benefits if you try to “go it alone.” Don’t
be a “lone wolf.” I hope to see more of you in the coming
year.
May you and your family enjoy a blessed Christmas and
very Prosperous New Year!
