EDITOR’S DESK: The accidental extrovert comes alive in Crestview

Published: Wednesday, March 26, 2014 at 02:44 AM.

Here, no one knew me or my family. That was both scary and refreshing, as it opened opportunities to get out there and meet people again.

And have I ever! Being Relay For Life Crestview's publicity chairperson, visiting monthly with the Crestview chamber and PILOT members, joining the local Toastmasters International chapter and guest speaking for various organizations, including an April 10 date with the Crestview Civitans, has been the opportunity of a lifetime.

And I'm always looking to learn more about the area and visit with other organizations or clubs I don't know about. (Hint, hint!)

I didn't even do this stuff in my hometown.

Which brings me back to the nicest compliment from last week's PILOT meeting. One of the attendees said she sees me around the community, sees the activity generated on our new Opinion page and can't remember anything about the last News Bulletin editor.

I feel for him, but felt reassured that we're on the right track.

And I'm so grateful for this opportunity to bring you the news, meet everyone I can in North Okaloosa and, on a personal note, really come alive.
