This Week's Speaker:

Everyone at Chapel Hill Leads Group is used to Sharon Hill opening her elevator speech by saying “Sharon Hill, 1-800.”  At our August 9 meeting, she will be regaling us with the story of how her etiquette business came about.

If you missed last Wednesday's meeting ...

Nothing you've ever read or learned is nearly as important as what the person across from you is about to say … if you just shut up and listen. David Stoner, EnviroFix CEO, will share his 5 Networking Truths which starts with Shut up and listen.

Did You Know:

"Duty, Honor, Country"

These words came to mind as we notice that, once again, the American Flag has been lowered to half-staff on many federal buildings, fire stations, and other institutions. The reason, I believe is to acknowledge the loss of three Marines while on a training mission off the coast of Shoalwater Bay in Queensland.

"Those three hallowed words reverently dictate what you ought to be, what you can be, what you will be. They are the rallying points; to build courage when courage seems to fail; to regain faith when-there seems to be little cause for faith; to create hope when hope becomes forlorn." ~General Douglas MacArthur, May 12,1962

As we live our daily lives, may we consider these three words as our guide to being better citizens of the world. Duty to our communities and fellow man, Honor to be bestowed on those who deserve it, our loved ones and our God, and Country, to be proud citizens of this great land we call our home America.

I hope to see you this Wednesday morning, with a smile on your face, a patriotic song on your mind and pride in being an American Citizen.

Attention CHLG Members - The Chapel Hill Leads Group's goal is to raise 100+ boxes of cereal a month. If everyone brought one box of cereal to two meetings this month, the Chapel Hill Leads Group would easily exceed the 100 boxes of cereal goal.
