Greetings Members,

We’ve made it! We’ve made it to the Christmas season! And WOW, can we certainly use some Christmas JOY! It’s been a year like no other, to put it mildly. Global pandemic, economic recession, mass unemployment, and political division, etc.  Whatever personal struggles you have faced this year, the realities of life have been heavy and humbling. But, in spite of the darkness around us, there’s light at the end of the tunnel bringing JOY. With Joy, you will find the strength to persevere another day, and as we continue to grow stronger in our uncertain surroundings, life will become promising again.

So, let the spirit of love gently fill your heart with Peace and Happiness; and may the present year end with a sparkle of hope to make way for a fresh and bright New Year.

Lastly, mark your calendars for NALS of PA Annual Education Conference, Awards Banquet and Installation Ceremony, hopefully in-person, in Kutztown, PA, April 30 – May 2, 2021.

As the New Year approaches, let us replace hate with love, fear with faith, and remember the bond we share as an association.

Happy Holidays,

Ella M. Herbin
