Dear members and constituents, It has been a good year for the Friday Donut Club. With the exception of one non-holiday Friday (which will be remembered as Black Friday) we have had a continuous supply of Donuts every Friday. During 2005, the club made a move to "high end" donuts to provide members with high expectations reliable quality. While many members have left (mostly due to the fact they left the company and it thus becomes highly inconvenient for them to participate), our participation and membership remains healthy with new members joining the ranks in larger numbers than our churn. As you make your new year resolutions, remember that contrary to popular belief, a donut contains far fewer calories than a bagel. Kim Carroll (via Time Wise) has delivered a dozen donuts to my desk for those of us who are here this last work-day of 2005. Please come on by and enjoy a sweep pastry if you are here. Thank you all for a great year and I can only hope next year will be as go
Donuts are part of the magic that makes life so sweet. I founded the Level 3 Friday Donut Club in 2004 and ran it until my departure in 2015. It had a three year run at Windstream and is now virtual, but at its peak, we had a rotation of 50+ folks who brought donuts every Friday. We had three simple rules: (1) five dozen (2) boutique shop donuts (3) by 8:00 am. This blog memorializes these e-mails to share my thoughts (and, once upon a time, announce the donut arrival). Have a happy Friday!
