Message From The President

Hello TPOC Members,

On Memorial Day, I hope you took time out of your busy schedule to remember those friends and family members who passed away while serving in the United States Armed Forces.

As I mentioned in last month’s letter, we are planning to move forward with our plans for the first event of TPOC’s 20th year anniversary. Due to a change in the theater’s opening, we had to adjust our dates as well. So, our fun filled weekend in the Big Apple will convene on September 29 through October 3. This exciting weekend will include custom tours, exciting theatre events and, of course, special receptions selected dining ventures and so much more. We are looking forward to all of TPOC, our partners, friends and family to enjoy this time together after such a long separation.

We have decided that we will celebrate our 20th anniversary in Savannah, Georgia. Please save the following dates: Pre-conference May 10 and 11 with the conference convening May 12 through 15. We are also planning a post conference in Charleston, SC on May 15 and 16. It is going to be an enjoyable week visiting special areas within the Gullah, Geechee Corridor. This is an event you do not want to miss.

TPOC is constantly growing. Since my last message, we’ve welcomed the following new members: PJ Douglas Sands, manager of Luxe Worldwide Travel/International Heritage Tourism Network located in Houston, Texas and Marilyn Brown manager of Intele Travel located in Severn, Maryland. Welcome aboard ladies.

Stay informed of all our upcoming events by viewing our website, viewing (and liking) our Facebook page and by attending our monthly virtual meetings. Our next Virtual Members Meeting will be on Thursday, June 17  at 7:00 p.m. Eastern time.

Our virtual meeting in May, hosted by our anniversary committee, included a “Happy Hour & Game Night” with special drink recipes and a cash prize. The fundraising event was a huge success, raising over a $1,000.00. It appeared everyone enjoyed the event. I especially like to thank our mixologist, Mrs. Star Daley, for her participation. Congratulations to jeopardy’s winner Pamela Bentley-Robinson. Thanks to Dr. Janice Carter-Steward and Shirley Hockett for such a great idea. Good job by the entire committee.

It appears even though the CDC has changed many of its guidelines, the wearing of a mask is still necessary in certain situations. Please check out our TPOC store shown on the website, we currently are featuring a mask with the TPOC logo, which will help with our fundraising efforts.

On behalf of the entire TPOC board, we would like to wish each of you a happy and blessed Father’s Day, a celebration honoring fathers and fatherhood, paternal bonds, and the influence of fathers in society. Remember to say a prayer for those who have lost or do not know their fathers.  Happy Father’s Day!

Mind Message: You will never change your life until you change something you do daily. The secret of your success is found in your daily routine.
