As we begin a new year - I thought I would sit down and reflect on this past year and share ,here, some well deserved thanks for another special year for Team Flatline Outdoors.
Preparing for another year brings a renewed excitement and the opportunity for growth and improvement.
I'd like to personally thank everyone that helped make this past year a huge success. 2018 was a very memorable year. Making new friends, stretching our comfort zone of outreach and welcoming change with open arms. It has been an absolute pleasure to be apart of this non-profit organization. When people come together under a common goal - special things happen. Being able to trust in God's plan for us builds character and lasting relationships with those we help. We all look forward to what 2019 has to bring. Of course, none of this would be possible without the continued support of our sponsors and supporters. Their selfless and generous contributions have spurred us on over the years and make possible for further and farther outreach to the ones who need it most. We are honored to be stewards of each and every dollar that comes into this 501-c3. Our mission and promise is to extend each and every gift towards those who need it and we will continue that promise.
Special people come into our lives and they are a true and eternal blessing. I have several special people that came into my life and id like to thank them. My wife Elissa. You have been the rock of our family and I thank you for your selfless love and determination to grow and improve. You're an awesome mom and wife. I love you every much. Clay Thompson. TFO President and one of my very best friends. Clay - you are an outstanding human being. Our life long friendship continues to be a bright spot in my life and I want to thank you for your huge heart and constant loving nature. You are a great mentor to those around you and you are appreciated beyond measure. Todd Doege and his wife Sheila. Todd, you are a generous and joyful man of God. You are also one of my very best friends. From hosting our events and adventures to working to grow what we are doing is an amazing blessing. Your heart is bigger than your dreams.
