The Council Connection October 2020

NETWORKING

22 YEARS AGO IN A GALAXY NOT SO FAR AWAY, A PRODUCE ASSOCIATION WAS BORN. IT WAS NAMED THE SOUTHEAST PRODUCE COUNCIL AND WAS STRONG WITH THE FORCE. IN THE YEARS FOLLOWING ITS CREATION, THE COUNCIL HAS GROWN INTO A VIBRANT AND INNOVATIVE ORGANIZATION. MEANWHILE, THE REPUBLIC HAS DISCOVERED A NEW ENEMY, CREATING A DISTURBANCE IN THE FORCE. MANY PRODUCE KNIGHTS HAVE BEEN QUARANTINED, AND THE VERY FUTURE OF THE PRODUCE ORDER IS IN JEOPARDY. YOU HAVE BEEN CHOSEN TO JOIN FORCES WITH THE COUNCIL TO CELEBRATE THE RISE OF PRODUCE AND RESTORE UNITY TO THE PRODUCE GALAXY…

COMMUNITY

Community Updates

Our Featured Charitable Partner for October is Paul Anderson Youth Home.

For 27 years, the Paul Anderson Golf Classic has served as a strategic event through which God has provided the funding that is essential to serving the needs of troubled young men and their families. The Paul Anderson Golf Classic has raised millions of dollars for work with the young men needing a second chance and an alternative to incarceration. The SEPC is proud to be a platinum sponsor of the Paul Anderson Golf Classic in support of their vital ministry.

During Southern Exposure 2020, SEPC issued The Golden Rule Challenge to exhibitors as well as attendees to share how they serve others for the greater good of our industry and our world. We’d love to continue that challenge by sharing how our members are continuing to #MakeADifference!
