September-bound…In June?

calendar2Right now, with June so close we can smell July. Everyone’s anxious as we run into the home stretch to get some much deserved R&R.  For me, as well as my corporate office associates, June is just the beginning alright.  But it’s the beginning of what’s annually referred to as “Getting ready for September”. 


Yeah, not a hip or even interesting project name I know. But none theless a reality. We will plan, we will develop, we will design, we will print, we will sort, we will organize,  and yes, yes , yes: we will orchestrate, demonstrate and train on everything we have planned, developed, designed, printed, sorted and organized. 


We will do all of this thinking that we will squeeze in some of our own R&R, and sometimes that even happens! And, just as the last of the planning has commenced and all of the planning has been settled, you guessed it: it’s September!


And, we will be ready, and not  just “ready,” but READY.  Ready to not only tackle what could possibly be one of the most challenging times we have seen in the past 20 years in the school nutrition, but also the most exciting. 


So, my fellow school nutrition friends: while your reading on the beach, laughing around a fire on a camping trip or sipping a nice cold drink on the deck one lazy afternoon this summer--SAVOR THE MOMENT--because by August, you can almost smell September.

Kelly, your blog is so "right on the money" for me. I'm heading for vacation next week in Ocean City, NJ with the thought of lounging on the beach, playing some golf and drinking a few cold ones on the deck at sunset. But at the same time, I have 3 proposals left this selling season.

Soooo, I'll do what most of us in this crazy, wonderful food service business of ours do - work a couple of hours in the morning before the family gets up and then enjoy some relaxation later in teh day. Just part of the joy of working in the School Lunch market since we all know that September is closer than we think!
