Good Bye and Best Wishes!

Steve Maricque and Jan Crawford, volunteer, on his last day at the Red Cross.

It’s amazing how quickly nine years can pass.  I can still remember that first week as Executive Director and asking myself, “what did I get myself into?”  But, it improved as time went on and I hope that in some way I left my mark with the organization.

I will always cherish my time with the American Red Cross. I looked at my experience as a blessing and a chance to grow as a person.  I’ve had a wonderful opportunity to get to know many outstanding people that I will forever be grateful. 

Thank you so very much for providing me the chance to serve as your leader.  It was an honor.  You truly do extraordinary things to help others in need.  You make this community a great place to live because of your caring attitude.  Always keep that and continue to help others.  That’s what’s important in this life.

I hope I will continue to see many of you.  I wish you all my very best as you continue your journey.

Take care,

Steve Maricque
