A Message from MOFGA’s President Given at the Annual Meeting

By Bob Sewall

I would like to thank Ellis [Percy] for preceding me this last year. I would also like to thank everyone for their support. I do realize that the opposition of other candidates was, at the most, thin.

During the coming year, this will be a time when the footprint of MOFGA will become visible at the Unity site. Great changes will be taking place for MOFGA. Keeping MOFGA and the Common Ground Country Fair site in balance will be an undertaking. The needs of each will have to be met. I hope that MOFGA’s committees will find their needs met and they will grow into this site as much as the Fair does.

The opportunity for creative ideas will exist throughout the development of the permanent site. I would like to encourage and challenge our members in the creation of the permanent site. Decisions need to be made; diversity of input is imperative if MOFGA is to be sustainable as an organization.

Over the years I’ve learned who are the old work horses of MOFGA. Their work and dedication has helped to build and shape this organization. Their experience has added clarity and wisdom to our decision-making process.

[The next generation of work horses includes] the young people who wish to join or are already a part of MOFGA. I wish to be available and open to your observations and thoughts. Learning from and teaching each other will help carry MOFGA’s mission of education.
