Goodbye from Rodney... for Now

You may recall that I barely made it to the 2016 Volunteer Appreciation Event because my son was just a few days old. Well, it's time for me to be a full-time father for a while.

I will go on parental leave from May to October.

Ansel & Beatrice
Ansel has reached 6 months. He sleeps well but wakes up early (to his parents' chagrin). He loves walks, the swimming pool, his Mom, his sister, and cuddles.

I will have my hands full, this summer, as I'll also be balancing his 3-year-old sister, Beatrice. She is always running, singing, and dancing.
Missing Out
I will miss the daily contact with volunteers and co-workers. We work with and volunteer with good people, smart people, and inspiring people.

I have learned that MCRs are a fascinating bunch. Each with our own insights, passions, and motivations. But I know that every MCR can make a difference every day. Just keep connecting with friends and family and making one small ask.

You really are community leaders.
What Next?
We haven't confirmed who will take my place, just yet. But the MCR Program is in good hands. You can count on Sarah and our boss, MCR Aurea S.

Meanwhile, I know that THEY can count on YOU.

We will let you know who is coordinating the MCR Program just as soon as possible.

Enjoy the spring, Rodney
