Humble and Great

Thursday, Jul. 15, 2010

I thought I had a great idea to help my tiny nonprofit for Special Kids, Parents Helping Parents, grow and sustain itself... Create a super dynamic Community Associates Board to meet only twice a year. The dynamic movers and shakers on this Board would need a super colossal chairperson. "Whom shall I ask Lord?" None better to seek than Father Locatelli, the busiest person in town. He said yes; held the position until his retirement, and the local and national community now continues to benefit from PHP services for Special Kids. And that was just one of several extensions of his time, talent and personal touch that helped spelled success for a struggling agency. Thanks and well done Father Locatelli. You not only taught us well, you showed the way.
