Doing this would make it hard for YOU to get your CE credits. Fellow OANY members it’s time! It’s time to step up and realize what OANY is. We’ve been a family for over twelve years. OANY is a place to get together and pick each other’s brains. Perhaps you will walk away with just one suggestion that may Pete Seeger once wrote a song, “Where have all the flowers gone?” Well, with poetic license, I say “Where have all our OANY members gone?” Once again, I was very disappointed in the turnout at our May meeting. I’m getting fed up and disgusted. I don’t know what else to say. Every month it’s the same old story. ATTENDANCE STINKS!!! As your President, it’s my job to try and rectify this. Without your input it’s virtually impossible. Should we go to a meeting every two months? That’s not something I want to do. improve your practice or the way you make that extra sale. RANT OVER! I would like to thank MH Optical for sponsoring our meeting and providing us with two CE credits. Vicki and Mitch once again I thank you for being long time OANY supporters. Without people like you, we wouldn’t and couldn’t exist. We also want to wish Dr. Joe Bacotti a speedy recovery from heart surgery. We look forward to seeing and hearing from him soon.
