a village mission statement & a few staff training thoughts

I was passing through Margetts Lodge an hour ago when I saw this poster: a village has written a mission statement.

Yes, it's staff training week. Going very well, it seems. There's a very strong and experienced director team, and VCs who seem not just organized and experienced but seem to like each other quite a lot already. And our fabulous new Program Director (or Activities Director), Lindsay, who came over from the Farm, where last summer she was one of the directors there - and she seems just terrific, with associate directors who are all themselves very experienced. And lots of returning counselors and energetic bright-eyed JCs from among last year's CITs. All in all, they strike me as...well....ready to go.
