Thread Name: Teens. The next generation...
Subject: RE: Teens. The next generation...
I have just read this whole thread and I want to add my thanks and a hearty Big Mick Mudcat welcome to our Coley. That means that if I ever see you, lad, you will get a hearty hug from the biggest Mick you have ever seen. I am so pleased you have joined us and that your arrival has sparked a thread that shows us how valuable the younger members are. This just reinforces my belief that we are a vital, living community.

In my work, I have seen the effect on viable organizations that don't train, learn from, and encourage those that will come after them. Those organizations are dying a bit at a time. The successful long term organizations and communities are those that are interested in responding to the needs of all segments of that community.

Show us the way, young ones. We can give a tip or two along the way, but it is yours to take into the future.

Big Mick
