October 2020 Illinois Administrative Professional Newsletter
Greetings and Happy October 2020!
Can you believe it, the year is almost over?! Weather is getting cooler; leaves are starting to change, and people are breaking out their crockpots or Instant Pots to make their favorite chili or soups. Did you know Christmas décor is in the store and we have not had Halloween? Of course, I didn’t pay attention to the Christmas décor, I was saying “bad candy” every time I saw candy corn or pumpkins. What is your favorite thing about Fall? I like having fires in my fire box, roasting hot dogs and watching the glowing embers.
Please mark your calendars for the following dates:
Wednesday, October 21, 2020—Celebrating Boss of the Year; please plan to join us via Zoom. Registration information is below.
Sunday, November 1, 2020—Time Change; turn clock back one hour.
