Mike’s Message for August

What a great summer it has been! CAC has really outdone itself with great sunshine activities this year. In addition to the usual’s like outdoor volleyball, happy hours, biking, dances, hikes, brunch, Pirate games, softball and tennis, we have also enjoyed camping, a scenic train ride, canoeing, golf, and mini golf (just to name a few). The Pittsburgh chapter is one of the most active chapters of the CACI. A brief look at newsletters of CAC’s from other cities, you can see what I mean. Few chapters even come close to the number or quality of our activities.

Of course, it took a lot of pulling teeth to get some of you shy members to take advantage of all the great work your Board is doing. CAC has a lot to offer. As single people, many of us are not burdened by the responsibilities of family, and are unencumbered by debt. So, in a way, we are like kids with money and a car. And we don’t have to answer that annoying old question:“Where are you going and when are you coming home?” We’re free! Free to go to picnics, dances, and weekend events! So don’t waste this rare and magic time of life! Go out and have some fun with your CAC friends!

OK, so some of us do have responsibilities of family, such as aging parents. And maybe we do have some debts, like a mortgage or a car payment. But that’s no reason to lock ourselvesaway never to be seen or heard. Break away once in a while and refresh your inner spirit by spending some quality time with good friends. That’s what CAC is for. Make the most of it.
