Holiday Wishes

Dear Friends of the Iowa State Club of DFW

If your days are like mine right now, the minutes and hours pass far too quickly. I don't know what it is about the period between Thanksgiving and New Years Eve that propels us to be so frantically busy, but we all are, and I suppose we have to accept the fact that hectic schedules go hand-in-hand with the holiday season.

But even with the inevitable stresses that come with the season, somehow the important things in our lives rise to the surface — finding time to relax with my pets, spending valuable time with my wife and daughter, sneaking 30 minutes in the evening to catch up on the latest news from around the world before sleep takes over....visiting friends and family. These precious moments alleviate the stress and help me focus on what really matters — being thankful for the endless blessings that I enjoy in life.

One of the greatest things I enjoy is the privilege of serving our exceptional university. Iowa State University represents many values, but the value that continuously stands out is its sense of community. In 2016, our Alumni Club continued to grow and has established itself as one of the premier Iowa State Alumni Groups in the nation.  This past year we held our first family picnic, hosted Jamie Pollard for a meet and greet, hosted the Iowa State Media for a BBQ dinner with Q & A and awarded two $750 scholarships.  In the coming year we will continue to do great thingsincluding granting scholarships to two more incoming Freshmen and hosting numerous exciting family events. Your participation in our events has allowed the Iowa State Club of Dallas/Fort Worth to be a strong resource for people with a variety of affiliations to our beloved University. Our University is so much stronger and our Dallas and Fort Worth Area Community so far bettered by your kindness and generosity. Thank You!

The Board of Directors of the Iowa State Club of Dallas/Fort Worth wishes all of our Cyclone Family and Friends a peaceful, safe and joyous Holiday season and a Happy New Year! Thank you for allowing us the privilege of serving you in 2016 and we look forward to continuing our Cyclone tradition of service in the new 2017 year.

Happy Holidays!
