The Third Level

Too often we wait too long to honor those who have an extraordinary history of kindness. People like that should be acknowledged while they are still relatively healthy and over sixty. Some of you may remember Ralph Edwards and the “This is Your Life” TV program years ago. After selecting a candidate, a complete story of their life was assembled, and friends, family, and associates were invited to share these experiences. An event was set up to surprise them and Ralph Edwards was the emcee.

Our thought is to find candidates in our community that deserve one of these “This is Your Life” acknowledgments and to arrange an event similar to the TV show. The planning and execution of these is quite extensive and our goal may be to do just one or two a year. Your ideas as to possible nominees or suggestion as to the process are always welcome.
