A Note from the Founder – Hellos and Goodbyes
by Kerry Cordy
It is with a sad and heavy heart that I say goodbye to my current office manager, Hannah. Her family received a wonderful job opportunity and she moved with them to Washington in September. For the last two years Hannah as kept Quest Clubs running smoothly. Every order that went out, every badge that was made, you can thank Hannah for. She did an amazing job. With my own life taking turn into the chaotic while I take care of my mother who has moderate Alzheimer’s, Hannah has been my rock. I cannot tell you how many times she held down the office by herself, sometimes for weeks at a time, when I could not be there. She will be sorely missed.
The good news is that I have hired three new employees to replace her. (Yes, she did such a great job that I need three to do her job now!)
Say hello to Sara, my new office manager who will be taking over Hannah’s job. She will be handling all the office work such as bookkeeping, website maintenance, badge editting, etc. as well as filling in with shipping orders and making badges when needed. Sara will also be helping me with marketing, blogging, and social media.
Emily is our new shipping manager. She will be responsible for packing and shipping all orders as well as making all the badges and inventory control. During the slow seasons she will help Sara with the office work and during the busy seasons Sara will help her with the orders.
Emmie is our new creative director. She will be putting together new meeting lesson plans as well as a variety of craft and game projects to be added to the resource section of our website. If you have ideas you would like to share with other members and see posted, please email them to firstname.lastname@example.org

If you are looking for a fun way to combine requirements for badges this Christmas, try making a Grinch Cake as part of both the Baking Badge as well as the Dr. Suess badge. Full instructions can be found at http://thebearfootbaker.com/2014/12/grinch-cake-christmas/
Parade of Lights
Two of my Quest clubbers leading my ponies in the Prescott(Ontario) Parade of Lights. They were awesome (both ponies and club members!) and are the talk of our community! The ponies are Tanner on the left and Tsuki on the right. We also had our young filly Astra with us. Ponies, parades and Quest club. What more can you ask for!
