 Chairman's Message

SUMMER VACATION

Do you remember when you were a kid and had to go back to school in the Fall?  I remember muttering under my breath “Darn it, I was just beginning to have fun!” or a little more colorful words to that effect.  My family was lucky enough to live in a house by a lake.  My brothers, sisters, cousins, friends and I spent our summers outdoors filled with playful adventures and fun.  We would be in and out of the water swimming and sunbathing on the shore.  We would go fishing and were filled with delight when we caught a bunch of small sunfish. This is when I learned a good lesson.  You see I thought I would clean these little fish so we could have them for dinner.  However, after hours spent removing their little heads and entrails there remained very little fish left to eat.  Lesson learned throw the little ones back.  The real joy was in the catching.

We caught butterflies, crickets, pollywogs, frogs, crawdads and garter snakes but we’re always on the lookout for those “big snappers” (snapping turtles). At night we would fall asleep watching the blinking lights of the “light’n bugs” (fire flies) that we caught and placed in a ventilated mason jar on the windowsill.  We were tuckered out and life was good.

I remember going back to school after another great summer vacation and my teacher, Mrs. Aaronson, asked us to write an essay on “What I did on my summer vacation”.  Summer was over and I was back to school again.  “D@#%  it!!”  But being the little smart aleck kid that I was, I turned in a 3 word essay.  “I HAD FUN.”  When I got my essay back Mrs. Aaronson had circled my grade in red ink.  D essay & B+ honesty.

 I think Mrs. Aaronson would have liked this essay better.

Brothers and Sisters, it’s summer vacation time again.  Whether you are going on a summer vacation or summer staycation, I hope you’ll have a good time.  If you are not having a good time, try thinking back to a good time you had as a kid.  It helps.

Remember, Fall will be here before you can blink twice. CSEA school assignments and duties will begin again not to mention Political flyers in your mailbox and wall to wall TV political ads.

In Solidarity,

Ron Duva, Chairman
