Dear members and constituents, Like sugar powder on a delicious donut, snow blankets my driveway faster than I can shovel it away. Never mind the snow, it's the donuts I'm concerned with. No donuts last week, no donuts this week… how long can this drought last? Christie Rygiewicz is making her debut on the donut club next week. My only word of advice to Christie: come in early next Friday so you don't get plowed by a blizzard of sugar-deprived Friday Donut Club members. May the new year bring with it fortune and success. May Level 3's stock price triple. May it snow several feet in the mountains while blue skies blanket our fair city. Over all, may every Friday find you with a donut in one hand and a hot beverage of your choice in the other. Happy New Year!
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!
