Sir Gary Bergenske,
Nothing can be said about your
TRAC Visit to Ararat but ...
WOW! ... SUPER!
I don't know where to start in
reference to the Ararat Temple
TRAC Visit. You were FANTASTIC!
You looked great, were well
received, respected by all and
kept participants on the edge of
their seats all day. You shared
success stories, identified
current problems and recommended
strategies for recovery with a
touch of class. Needless to say
when one can keep the interest
of more than one-hundred
participants (on a nice fall
day) from 9:00 AM to 2:30 PM and
receive an enthusiastic standing
ovation at the end as you did,
that should tell you that you
were a hit in Kansas City.
you over the years on the
Imperial Membership Executive
Committee and the TRAC Team has
been rewarding and a pleasant

Dreams of helping
canít believe that there are any heights that canít be scaled by a
man who knows the secrets of making dreams come true. This special
secret, it seems to me, can be summarized in four Cís. They are
curiosity, confidence, courage, and constancy, and the greatest of
all is confidence. When you believe in a thing, believe in it all
the way, implicitly and unquestionably.
