In recent newsletters, this fund has been mentioned several times. With the recent "Orlando Massacre", it was suggested as a place to make donations. With the passing of our founder, Woody Baldwin, it has again been mentioned. I'd like to take this time to give some background information about the fund and how it operates and helps promote our organization.
How do others see you? Are you approachable, friendly, and accepting of others? Some people tend to be gregarious with others and have no problem with meeting and including new people. However, for the majority of us, this doesn't come naturally and involves "work" on our part. One of the problems of being in a group is that we tend to define our "comfort zone" within the group then proceed to stay within those limits, but the unfortunate result of this behavior is the formation of "cliques". A clique is defined as a small, exclusive group of people. While cliques of themselves are not necessarily negative things, it is the "exclusive" part that can damage the larger social group particularly when that group has been designed to reach-out and include others.
