President's Monthly Message

Hello All, 

As I am writing this, I realized that this coming meeting will be my last as an Officer of SEMPPES. Reflecting back on my four years on the board, I realize how rewarding this invovlement in the organization has been. Between all the wonderful members I was able to meet along with the other group of officers that supported our common goal, it truly was a great four years and I will miss being an officer. 

With that in mind, I was the presenter for the October meeting speaking on the important natural resource that is water. Through my work, I am constantly invovled with water conservation and water use integrity holds extreme importance to me. Even though in Michigan we may feel like we are surrounded by fresh, usable water, the costs of this water continue to rise adding even more motivation to try and use the resource wisely. 

For our last meeting of the year, I am very excited that Eric Cameron from DJ Conley will be speaking on the evolution of boilers over his 33 years in the business. He has pictures and anecdotes to tell the story of the development of boilers in Southeast Michigan. This will be a great presentation and along with this, we will continue our November tradition of having a great Thanksgiving dinner at O'Kelley's. And of course, the 50/50 raffle will include "Our Great Turkey" giveaway so join us so you don't miss out!
