*** UPDATED x1 *** Question of the day
Wednesday, Dec 2, 2020
* December is the time for two holiday traditions at the ol’ blog: 1) Fundraising for Lutheran Social Services of Illinois; and 2) our Golden Horseshoe Awards.
LSSI is such an important part of Illinois, particularly in a year like this. They run a Therapeutic Foster Care program for children with histories of severe trauma and emotional/behavioral needs. They do home care for senior citizens. They have a free mental health crisis program. They collect Christmas presents for foster kids. And so much more.
So, please, click here and donate today. I’ll match the first $1,000.
* Now, about the Golden Horseshoe Awards. Since there was basically no session this year, I’m not sure that many of our categories are even relevant (best restaurant, bars, waitstaff, legislators, lobbyists, etc.). So, what would you like to do? Which categories do you think would be most appropriate? And, remember, these awards are for achievement. We don’t waste our time on negativity. No snark allowed.
My own thoughts are that we give the best agency director award to Dr. Ezike and give a huge shoutout to all the staff who have kept everything together during these crazy times and call it a day. Your thoughts?
And while you’re mulling over your answer, please click here and donate to Lutheran Social Services of Illinois. Thanks!
