President's Letter

President's Letter, Winter-2007

Foundations

This fall, Marcia and I sent our middle son off to college. Like many parents, we felt conflicting emotions: pride, melancholy, excitement, and, dare I say, some measure of relief. Like most 18-year-olds, he had been spending less and less time at home and was ready for more independence. Still, we miss his presence in the house. We find ourselves looking for his car in the driveway, listening for his voice down the hall, and marveling at the extra food in our refrigerator. Mostly, we hope we have provided the foundation he needs to be a happy, healthy, and successful adult.

    A ‘Rosa’ for Portland
