Last Thursday we had a block club meeting and I mentioned that I wanted to elect new officers for the upcoming year. One of my neighbors asked " Bill, you don't want to be President no more?". I told here that i did , but would like to see other regulars at the meetings get involved. She said, " You know if you guys leave that's the end of the block club."
And there it was right in my face, the realization that I had failed Community Organizing 101,
"Always work to develop indigenous leadership".
