The grace of the Lord Jesus be with all. Amen.
Goodbye to the Commonside Ladies: (left to right) Jenny, Selena, Becky, and Suzanne. Thank you for taking this possibly-annoying American student on for six weeks, for teaching me so much about London, life, and incidentally Commonside Trust. Thank you for letting me learn with you about marketing and for trusting my suggestions (Don’t Panic. And Don’t Centre Text). Thank you for the wonderful send-off at the Common Room and Giraffe — the hot chocolate, hummus and bread, pie, and Rocky Road ice cream were lovely. Thank you for the kind send-off gifts and the first-ever CCDT newsletter all about me. You are all wonderful and I will miss you very much. May you successfully negotiate with the Council, survive your hardships with the Community Centre, and establish a fantastic thriving new [Fill in the Blank] Centre that everybody loves for years to come.
