This Christmas Greeting is my deep and heartfelt message to each of you during this wonderful holiday season. It is impossible for me to mail out a Christmas card to all of the “Friends of Copey” given the number of you involved and because I only have email addresses for most of you. So, please accept this as my Christmas Greeting and my wish for the very best for you and yours and my thank you for all you have done.
In a few days the movie titled “Hidden Figures” will be showing up at our local theaters. This is a true story about Katherine Johnson and other females who made history because of their involvement with our country’s space mission. Katherine Johnson is my oldest living aunt (age 98) and I join the rest of our family and friends in congratulating Aunt Katherine for making her mark on our country’s history. It is wonderful her special and unique story will be out on the “Big Screen” for the world to see. You may recall my December 1, 2015 Post which reported on her receiving the well deserved Presidential Medal of Freedom from President Obama. We all are very proud of her, her husband Jim, and daughters Joylette and Katherine. And, we remember Aunt Katherine’s daughter Connie who passed away several years ago. Read the book and go see the movie.
Thank you for sending your notes regarding our 2016 performance report and achievement of our goals. Much has been done…there is still much to do and it will only get done if you are part of the effort.
Once again, Merry Christmas to each of you and thank you for being “Friends”.
