Dear ACC Greater Philadelphia Members and Friends:
Happy Spring 2023!! As the weather gets warmer and the days grow longer, I hope you’ll think about extending your day to do something fun – including joining us at our Tennis Outing (June 14) and/or our Charity Softball game at the Blue Rocks Stadium in Wilmington (July 13). Thanks to all of you who attended our May social events – annual Spring Fling (May 11), MYC at Five Iron Golf (May 17), our 44th Annual Philly Bar 5K race for charity (May 21). For those who missed out, please join us next year!
Speaking of fun, I hope you enjoy the brief article and pictures taken at the “Friends Experience” outing in King of Prussia. We had a blast sitting on the re-created stage set – whether it was on the couch in front of the water fountain seen in the opening credits of Friends, sitting on Joey and Chandler’s chairs in their re-created living room or hanging out at Central Perk (there were some attempts at playing “Smelly Cat”). The best part was sharing this experience with our own ACCGP friends!
Speaking of taking time with friends, we had more than 760 ACCGP friends attend our 10th Annual IHCC! This year’s feedback was overwhelmingly positive, with members especially commenting on the additional wellness items, including free chair massages and guided meditations all throughout the day. Other members commented on how well fed they were all day long (including the healthy snacks in the wellness room – and the candy counter and popcorn machine inside the tech room). I hope you had an opportunity to have a headshot taken while at the IHCC. I wish to personally thank our photographer, Ken Blackshear, for the best headshot picture I have had taken in years! I need to thank the amazing IHCC Committee – and Joe Nullmeyer, Chair, along with our fantastic sponsors – without whom it would be impossible to host such a high caliber event.
Thank you for allowing me to serve ACCGP as your president and look forward to seeing all of you at future events!
