Happy 2017 to you all. I hope it is a year filled with love, good health and fun!
You have all been involved in the Landis Cup in one way or another over the last 4 years. You may have been a golfer. You may have been part of an organization that had a Landis Cup Member Golf Event. You may be connected to an organization that participated in one the Landis Cup $1,000,000 Charity Shootouts and Awards Luncheons.
These last 4 years have been some of my best. I was continually inspired by all of the wonderful work and great deeds done by the organizations and individuals that I have had the opportunity to get to know. This all culminated in the Shootout and more importantly to me personally, the Awards Luncheon, where we were able to bring the organizations together for a celebration of goodness. This, as those of you who have heard me complain about it, is not something our media puts much effort into, choosing bad over goodness to report. Boy, do they have it all wrong.
All of this has taken so much of my time and energy for most of each year. After a great deal of very deliberate soul searching, I came to the very difficlt decision that I need to give up the Landis Cup. The Landis Family Foundation and I will continue to be involved in the community but I also need more time for just Carol.
I wish you all well and continued success in all the wonderful endeavors you do for others. I'm sure I will see many of you out in our community.
Warmest regards and love!
