Greetings Sandy,

As we move into the Fall and Winter, we find the time to slow down and reflect. Recently, we rediscovered a familiar quote which has helped Adventure Associates contemplate our place in the world. While you consider your life's adventures and challenges, we hope you will find this quote useful as well:

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it's the only thing that ever has." --Margaret Mead, Anthropologist (1901-1978)
