Written a note lately ?
Growing up, the only thing as a kid
I somewhat dreaded was writing thank you notes
after receiving a gift or multiple gifts at
Christmas. As a parent we followed what our
parents told us and taught our children the
good manners of writing a note of
In today's world it seems far too frequent
that parents do not make their children or
themselves write notes to tournaments they
have just attended. Given the fact that these
events do not just happen, that hundreds of
volunteer hours go into putting on an event,
it seems the least we can do is drop a line to
the Pepsi Little Peoples or your state golf
association for their time and sacrifice.
While the tours could use a thank you once in
a while as well, it's really the volunteer
independent events that need to know that we
appreciate what they do.
So how about it everyone? Forget email. Let's
all go to our local card store, buy a box or
two of cards,some stamps from the post office
and then pass on a timeless tradition that's
not old fashioned. It matters.
