I would like to ask each of you for your forgiveness, for my not being active in attending recent local events; however, I have been undergoing a few personal health issues that made me feel tired and not of myself. I have received many invitations and I would like to have attended, however I was just not up to doing so. I asked several Madera Branch 1084 members to attend when they could and when able they did, to represent our branch.
And I personally would like to “thank each one for their continued help for our branch when asked by me.” I would like to assure you all, that the Madera NAACP Branch 1084 is still active and still here, and I am starting to once again feel as though I can resume my full duties as the elected Branch 1084 president. I ask for your continued prayers for me and I am so thankful for the many prayers you have already said for me on my behalf.
I had to get myself able to again stand and be strong enough to continue in our very important civil rights and discrimination work. All that we do is volunteer and sometimes our personal lives are laid aside to help others, but I had to realize that I am important too and I had to make sure that I am able to continue moving forward for all.
Again I ask your forgiveness for the recent inability to participate in your invitations or requests of me, and I am now beginning to feel as though I have passed that plateau and ready to move forward once again.
President Madera NAACP Branch 1084
