Sometimes, you just need to say “Thank You” . . . dozens and dozens of times.
The 2nd Annual Best Start Leadership Appreciation event welcomed – and expressed gratitude to – close to 200 participants at the Los Angeles County Arboretum on December 10.
The focus of the event was to celebrate the accomplishments of the 14 Best Start Community Partnerships and thank these leaders for their work throughout the year. Speakers included First 5 LA Commissioner Marlene Zepeda, Executive Director Kim Belshé and Best Start Communities Director Antoinette Andrews.
First 5 LA Director of Community Relations Rafael González also spoke, specifically showing appreciation for members who had gone above and beyond in 2016 by participating in the Learning Communities and Transition Team. All leaders received a nice gift and those who went above and beyond received a pin saying "Outstanding Volunteer."
