🦃 Happy Thanksgiving to our incredible community of supporters! 🍂

As we gather to give thanks on this special day, we want to express our heartfelt gratitude to the many people and organizations who support our mission all year long. To our visionary sponsors, event sponsors, program participants, and donors, thank you! Your unwavering support is the reason we can continue to empower individuals to be the best leaders they can be.

In our recently released annual report, we're excited to share the incredible impact we've made on the community through our leadership programs. It's a testament to the dedication of our staff, board members, and, most importantly, our program participants. Your commitment and enthusiasm have been instrumental in creating positive change.

But that's not all! We have some exciting news to share. A group of Third Age Initiative™ alumni, inspired by the transformational experience they had with LGH, came together and established their very own sponsorship level to support our newest Third Age Initiative™ cohort. Their generosity exemplifies the ripple effect of leadership and the sense of community we've cultivated.

This Thanksgiving, we want to extend our warmest wishes to you and your loved ones. Your support fills us with gratitude every day, and we can't wait to continue our journey together, creating more leaders and fostering positive change.

Wishing you a Thanksgiving filled with joy, love, and cherished moments. 🧡🍁

🤩Staff Spotlight: Meet Andre!

Role: Vice President & Chief Program Officer

Worked at LGH since: 2007!

Enneagram core type: 2 with a 3 wing. I am the helper that often appears as the host of groups- loves to entertain and take care of the people.💙

Outside of work: I enjoy spending time with my nieces and nephews👨‍👧‍👦, quiet beach days🏖️, road trips🚗, traveling🇩🇴, concerts and live theatre🎶. While I love to explore, I am also a creature of habit so you can find me at my usual spots around town.

Preferred weekend plans: Friday’s are dedicated to live music or entertainment, Saturdays are dedicated to fun and exploration (or rest and relaxation😴) and Sunday’s are dedicated to family.

Favorite food: Depends on the restaurant:
Aqui Me Quedo- Pernil y relleno de papas🥔
Dunn’s River- Stew Chicken 🥘
Salute- Cheesy garlic bread🧀
Shout out to all Hartford restaurants! I rotate my visitation

Share your productivity techniques: Whether it is programmatic events or training contracts, the work here changes everyday. Thankfully the work is emotionally, mentally and spiritually fulfilling so that helps to stay on top of things. I reply on my📱cell phone and reminders/alarms to keep me on top of things.

Biggest influence: My mother raised me to be hardworking, passionate, caring and giving. She demonstrated this each and every day growing up and now I live my life to be the best version of myself that I can be for my family and my community. 🥰

👇Comment below your favorite thing about Andre whether you just learned it today, or you know him personally.

I didn't know Andre had a 3 "wing" and that he loves theater, but I see it! I'll have to try "Aqui Me Quedo" sometime... sounds delicious 😋

Always wearing that smile!😃

Andre encourages the heart ♥️

It seems I have a bunch of similar hobbies and habits as Andre and I find it most amusing that we both set reminders and alarms to stay on top of things. I'm notorious for setting so many alarms that I even have alarms to remind me to shut some off. Haha

I have been a long-time supporter of Forge City Works, but no longer. Anyone who is the face/voice of an organization being as unprofessional as Ben Dubow in publicly calling a dedicated resident "crae crae" and telling her she has "too much time on her hands" is no longer on my list to support nor would I support an organization highlighting such an individual or spend one minute listening to what is clearly rhetoric coming from him. Educate yourself, Mr. Dubow!!!
