6 of 8 F3 Waxhaw Board members met early Saturday morning to discuss how we can continue to move forward and invigorate Male Community Leadership in our area.
Reminder of WHY we do a lot this “stuff”:
The money We are doing it for other men (the “sad clowns”). If you don’t have excitement to get guys involved and for helping your community, then time to step back and recharge the batteries. If you DO have a passion for helping others and want to do more within F3 Waxhaw, you are “Freed to Lead” a new project, but also encouraged to reach out to one of the Board members to see where you can get plugged in. Stop waiting for somebody to ask you.

F3 is special. This Waxhaw Region is special. Let’s not take it for granted. You might not think about it, but it actually takes a lot of effort to get what we have. And it will take more effort to keep it going and keep it GROWING! Are you willing to give a little more effort . . . To help a guy who needs it? Some guys in leadership need a break so we need you to take a turn.
