City Manager's Message: Happy Valentine's Day

Posted on February 13, 2015 at 12:28 PM by Mary Bunting

Last night I was helping my daughter make her Valentines for all the kids in her class. As she spoke to me about all the reasons she really loves all her classmates, my heart was warmed.

So often, as we move into adulthood, Valentine's Day becomes only about our romantic interests and loves. We miss the opportunity to show our other kinds of love for those - like friends, co-workers and neighbors - that make a positive difference in our lives. Our children remind us that showing our affection and appreciation for others is a natural and appropriate thing for us to do.

With this reminder fresh on my mind, I want to wish each of you a very happy Valentine's Day. You each are very important to our community and organization. 

I hope you will each take a few minutes today to wish your co-workers a very special Valentine's Day, and when you do maybe take a few extra minutes to tell them how they enrich your life. Words of appreciation and thanks truly make the best Valentine's presents!

Thank you for the dedication and love you give to our great city each and every day!

Mary
