Message from the President
Hello and Happy New Year!
This will be an exciting year as we celebrate the 75th anniversary of Leader Dogs for the Blind. Such an anniversary represents a significant milestone and provides an excellent opportunity to stop and reflect on past achievements. We are often in such a hurry to move forward and look ahead that we forget to look back and remember, to reflect and learn from the past.
In this issue of Update, we are taking the time to do just that—to revisit our history and highlight some of the people and events that impacted our direction and helped make Leader Dogs for the Blind the amazing organization it is today!
One thing that has been a continuous thread since our beginning in 1939 is that it takes a team of dedicated, passionate people and amazing dogs to make Leader Dog successful. This is true for our past, our present and will remain true into the future.
So, to each and every one of you, thank you for your continued support. We are truly grateful for your partnership. Please enjoy this peek into Leader Dog’s past and have a safe and happy winter.
Susan M. Daniels
