A Message from Our President

Mar 24, 2016

Dear Friends,

As I was out and about this morning, I was surprised by how chilly the wind was. Since coming to TPR after my stint at NPR in Washington, D.C., I’ve gotten spoiled to how warm it is here. And it’s not just the weather that’s warm – the people here are amazingly warm and welcoming. And the opportunity to connect with the people who care about TPR and appreciate what it brings into their lives is what makes me (dare I say it?) enjoy our pledge drives.
