Manager's Memo

MANAGER’S MEMO

“Look what I’ve got! It’s a Super bowl ring!” I looked up from the checkout line at Costco to see one of the checkers showing off a monstrous gold and diamond ring that is unmistakable to a football fan. I heard her ask the more than six-foot receiver-looking gentleman standing at the next counter what year and he said “1985.” That would make him a Chicago Bear and a member of a championship team that included Walter Peyton, Mike Singletary, Richard Dent, Jim McMahon and William “Refrigerator” Perry.  Their opponents, the New England Patriots, were making their first of many appearances in the big game.

Two teams, who worked and sacrificed and contended for a shared goal and one achieved the prize. I tell you this to ask a few questions I’ve been asking myself recently. What are my goals? What prize am I contending to attain? And what am I willing to do, to give up, to strive with a group of like-minded people to achieve? Or am I just sitting in the stands, watching others?  They feel like good questions to be asking as we head into January and a new year.  I’m just wondering what prize you’re striving for.

For 88.3 The Journey, I’m General Manager Mike Agee.

Bless a Sole in Need

Our annual Bless a Sole in Need sock & undies drive is underway. Once again, we have baskets in the lobbies of Pinnacle Banks in Keene, Cleburne, Joshua and Burleson for your donations. Last year, we collected more than a 1000 pairs of socks and almost 300 pair of underwear to share with those in need.

We’ll have baskets starting Friday, December 1st and we'll pick up the baskets on Thursday, Dec. 14th and get them divided up and delivered to Operation Blessing of Johnson County in Cleburne and to Harvest House in Burleson to give away to families in need this Christmas.  Thank you for your generosity and for going out of your way to help in past drives. And thanks to Pinnacle Bank for allowing us to invade your lobbies again this year.
