BARBARA ADAMS 607 ELMDALE ROAD, GLENVIEW, IL 60025 E-Mail: ADAMS2002@AOL.COM NEWSLETTER DEADLINE: 25 th of month before publication. If you are a sports fan, in any sense of the word, then the Olympic Games in Rio, has to be at the top of your list of must watch television. The skill and dedication of those athletes is beyond my comprehension. It makes you proud to be an American. It is still good to know that the principals that the games were founded on are still alive and well in this unsettled world we live in. I would like to elaborate on the three building blocks of that philosophy because I think that they are primary to basic human interaction. The first is -EXCELLENCE -which describes the quality of effort to be the best in all that we do in our daily lives. The second is -FRIENDSHIP -which asks us to continually advocate and strengthen links between all people no matter what their faith or nationality. The third is -RESPECT -which refers to respect for ourselves, for one another, for the rules, for fair play, and for the environment. I think that these principals certainly apply to what we stand for as an organization. Please keep these in mind in all your daily tasks and human interactions.

The Steering Wheel

If you are a sports fan, in any sense of the word, then the Olympic Games in Rio, has to be at the top of your list of must watch television. The skill and dedication of those athletes is beyond my comprehension. It makes you proud to be an American. It is still good to know that the principals that the games were founded on are still alive and well in this unsettled world we live in. I would like to elaborate on the three building blocks of that philosophy because I think that they are primary to basic human interaction.

The first is - EXCELLENCE - which describes the quality of effort to be the best in all that we do in our daily lives.

The second is - FRIENDSHIP - which asks us to continually advocate and strengthen links between all people no matter what their faith or nationality.

The third is - RESPECT - which refers to respect for ourselves, for one another, for the rules, for fair play, and for the environment.

I think that these principals certainly apply to what we stand for as an organization. Please keep these in mind in all your daily tasks and human interactions.
