AIS: Saying What Needs to Be Said

Bill is right. I think this is so important. 

All over the organization and its sections and local chapters there are folks 
beavering on to make things work. Most of the chores are not glamorous, many 
are done out of the spotlight, and most people don't do them in a spirit of 
self-promotion. Often there is a good deal of tedium involved, and biting of 
the tongue when drones whine, but people keep on beavering. They do it from 
the love of irises, from the wish to contribute to the education of others, 
from the need to make the organization something they are proud to be 
associated with, and sometimes because no one else will do the wretched task 
and it has to be done and done well. It takes very little effort to say 
thanks to people, to let them know you know they are working hard, and that 
you respect their industry and efforts.

'Tis the season, after all.
