President's Connection

Hello KBC Friends,

A hint of fall is in the air … school, football, extra curricular activities, work … the list goes on and on.  Take time for yourself.  Enjoy each moment that you have before you.  As the stress reaches a high point .. do as “Kid President” says ..“Pause, Breathe, Love.” 


In all seriousness, our chapter board is working hard to make sure that you get the most you can from your membership.  Help us help you!  Let us know what you want out of your membership.  What made you join MPI?  Education, connections, volunteerism, etc?  What can we do to help you achieve your goals?  Volunteer, become active in the chapter .. these actions help you to achieve your goals.

I hope to see you at the coming monthly meetings.  Please feel free to reach out to me or any of our board members.  We want to hear from you!

Happy Fall!

Joan Minton, 2017/2018 MPI KY Bluegrass Chapter President
