Quality of life should be daily topic for region

Recently, the Quality of Life Council collaborated with the One Region, One Vision Council in a luncheon to both report on progress made in pursuit of One Region initiatives and to recognize individuals for their efforts in advancing the goals of the Quality of Life Council. It was wonderful to see adults and youth who have contributed so much to their communities and the region recognized for their efforts. It was a "feel good" event.

However, the luncheon wasn't simply about seeing old friends, setting lunch dates and exchanging business cards. It was about our region focusing our attention and energy on what I like to call the four E's -- education, economic development, employment and environmental sustainability. It was a little poke to our collective conscience.
