Hurricane Sandy - a message from Executive Director, Brian Snyder
To all our PASA friends and members,
Some of the photos of devastation we have seen from the aftermath of this week’s storm have been heartbreaking. Mother Nature’s strength is something we count on for our farming livelihoods every day, but she also has the power to wreak havoc in our daily lives that cannot be anticipated or adequately prepared for under any circumstances.
PASA’s resources are minimal compared to the damage, but we wish to be mindful of any members who sustained losses, and helpful wherever we can be. If you have a particular challenge where we may be able to assist, please do not hesitate to contact us, and we’ll see what we can do. Perhaps it is just in contacting appropriate government agencies for help, but it might also be a situation where your fellow PASA members can lend a hand . . . through the power of a database, we can sometimes mitigate the destructiveness of natural events!
In any case, please feel free to be in touch. We also appreciate just hearing your stories, which very often end up being an inspiration to others.
