Every employee in the city contributes to the quality of life



The big picture. Can you see it Are you fond of all the colors? You might notice all of the shades that really add depth.

Before I finish that thought, how about part of my week.

Under the light of Bulleit Stadium, the 1970 class recently donated more than $ 30,000 to expand educational opportunities at the Seymour Ag-Science Research Farm in Freeman Field.

When you look at the members of this class, many may believe that other classes do not go together, but as I speak to different members, I am beginning to believe that all classes have a chance, for the community in which they grew up, to be just as helpful in.

I encourage you to remember that they have more years of experience than some of us and this is often reflected in their demeanor and glamor.

However, that doesn’t mean that other classes can’t help our community get better. With a class reunion coming up, start talking with your classmates about how your class can help Seymour. Thank you, born in 1970, for thinking about future generations and being a positive role model for others.

Did you get the chance to visit Seymour gluten free bakery? The 1852 Cafe is located on West Second Street and is now officially open to everyone. I recently had the opportunity to do live radio out of the cafe with Curt Nichols and later that day attend the ribbon cutting ceremony for my friends Jason and Stacy. Next time you’re out and about, don’t forget to visit downtown Seymour and try some of the great food it has to offer. Congratulations and cheers for many wonderful years to come.

The last shout out for the week goes to all the great volunteers with the Seymour Marching Owls and Color Guard. Volunteers make the job easier, and the mom’s recent pick up was a great example of how to get things done. Thanks Booster for all of the help. Without you, the program wouldn’t be the same.

I recently received a text message that said, “I had a bad day and need to learn to step back and breathe.”

This text came after answering some details about a project here in Seymour. When they got a better view of the big picture, they realized that a brief inconvenience would result in significant savings for our community as a whole. This interaction led me to think about how each Seymour employee contributes to the quality of life in our community.

However, I suspect someone reading this thinks that different roles do not add to this quality. As I sit and think about the bigger picture of our community, I see that each role makes us better.

Some are much more noticeable than others. For example, the police and fire brigade are often noticed very quickly and contribute to the public safety of our quality of life. Parks and Recreation works hard to keep our parks updated and to offer a program for our community members of all ages.

Water Pollution Control often goes unnoticed while the toilets are flushing, but through the pride they have in their job, they also help solve drainage problems with the most cost-effective solutions they can find.

The Department of Public Works contributes through areas of road repairs that are often complained about before and during the work, but are rarely commended for a good job after completion. Every Seymour employee, directly or indirectly, helps make our community a better place to live, and for that I say “thank you”.

Until next time, I would like to leave you this quote from Vince Lombardi: “Individual commitment to group performance – that’s what a team works, a company works, a society works, a civilization works.”
