FROM The PRESIDENT
I have to laugh. How do I get myself into these situations? I am a part of the baby boomer generation, but my forty-year career as a dental hygienist did not involve the use of computers, keyboards, or even typing for that matter. Now here I am composing a President’s Message for The Arkansas Trav’ler, our state newsletter. It’s like I completely missed the introduction of “Microsoft Word”. I know it has something to do with Bill Gates though. However, I must admit I do like using the computer. To send and receive emails, shop on eBay and use Google. The things I can find with a little research are astounding. In fact, some things that end up on my screen are totally unexpected. So, how about you? What’s your background? I know this for one thing. No matter what
your background, your generation, or where you are from, you and I have something in common. We are Questers. And you know what … that just answered my question. I
am in this situation because I wanted to serve my beloved organization, Arkansas State Questers. Questers are important to each other and important to our communities.
It makes me so terribly sad to hear about a fire, flood or tornado destroying a historic site and all its irreplaceable contents, but when a place with history is condemned and
destroyed in the name of progress I honestly have no words (that we can print). So here we are, united by our goals of keeping those rare, unique and treasured items around for future generations to enjoy.
You had to start each day with no memory, record or treasure of the past ?
Historians neglected to educate the public ?
Adults failed to interest younger generations in the past?
No one ever challenged the research of historians ?
