What’s Up? A TILIKUM Quarterly Newsletter

This Fall season is "get ahead time" of saving your lives and welcome to get more information, check at http://cresa911.org/2016/08/23 /cresa-introduces-text-to-911/

From the CEO: Dear Readers: Autumn is a time of transition. A time when the summer’s hot temper starts to cool down and transition into the cool crisp air that we associate with the fall season. A time when our children, both big and small, transition into a season of school and work. The cool crisp air also transitions into the cold air pregnant with snowflakes, preparing us for a season of hot cocoa, hot cider, wearing gloves and scarves, and roasting our cold extremities over roaring fires. We, at TILIKUM, are currently going through transition period of our own also. See our feature on hiring of two new staff members along with the building of our new sheds! Stay bundled up and warm as we transition into the winter months! Karl Reddy
