President's Message

President's Message - 6/18

June 18, 2018

Dear Fellow Members,

     “It was early morning yesterday; I was up before the dawn.At which point, I found myself preparing two speeches for Thursday night’s scholarship presentations at Massapequa High School (MHS.) We at the Chamber take education very seriously. After all, as American philosopher, John Dewey once wrote, “Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself.” Call it a prolonged childhood malady – but I still love to jot down thoughts and ideas at dawn’s first blush. It has been a lifelong disease of mine. This being my last appearance as Chamber President, I suppose I could have done what many presenters do and just “mailed it in.” That is not, however, (as my son Bobby would say) “the way I roll.” The honorees deserve my best effort. You cannot imagine how gratifying it was to be approached by the father of one of the winners and asked if I had a copy of the speech. It gets better. I was approached by the head of Guidance, Paul Weber and received compliments and high grades in an e-mail from the school’s principal, Patrick DiClemente the first thing Friday morning. I write this not to boast, but to highlight how “doing the right thing” is always the best course of action. It is always best to show people you care. “I expect to pass through this world but once,” wrote William Penn, “therefore any good that I can do, or any kindness that I can show to any fellow creatures, let me do it now. Let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.”
