We have had a record-breaking year of daily visitors to Conner Prairie and those who attended our programs, special events and mission-related activities. This success is directly attributed to the talent, skills and dedication of our hard-working employees and volunteers. I am thankful because without these dedicated and talented folks, we would not have been able to achieve these great heights:
Well, I believe you get the picture. I could easily go on with a hundred more bullets of success this past year, all because of the people I have the pleasure to serve with.
Finally, I’m thankful to complete our new executive leadership team with the hiring of three new vice presidents. This team will bring renewed energy and vision to the organization while complimenting the passion and creativity of colleagues with whom they will be working.
