My heartfelt gratitude to all of you, 52 chapters, and almost 5,000 members across the country.

Traveling across the country brings beautiful memories of chapter leaders’ great works in promoting the mission of PNAA, and you have inspired me to the core. The loving kindness that I have experienced from PNA North Houston, PNA Metro Houston, PNA Greater St. Louis, PNA Indiana, PNA New England, PNA Michigan, PNATGT/SCR Chapters, PNA New York, PNA Metro DC, PNA New Jersey, PNA Colorado, and PNA Central California are timeless and will forever live in my heart and soul.

My deepest gratitude to the PNAA Executive Board and Chairpersons of Standing and Ad Hoc Committees for your stellar leadership.

Let’s enjoy the gift of life and the bountiful blessings of our Lord God Almighty.

With love and gratitude,

This activity is to give an opportunity for the Executive Board to report what the organization has been doing and have accomplished in the past year. Of equal importance, We would like to use this activity to re-connect with the members, active or inactive, and get feedback on how to better our organization moving forward. This will be done as we break bread and give thanks. It is going to be a good day to recommit our energies to giving thanks, and just giving.
