Dear Crossfire Committee!

Chi Town Squares is very grateful! The board extends a heartfelt thank you. The board knows how labor intensive Crossfire is, and we are so very grateful for yet another great success this year! 

As board members, many of us have served on that committee, so we know how much effort is involved and we congratulate you on the success of this years Crossfire! It was one of the best in recent memory. A good time was had by all. I received many compliments and I made sure that the credit was not mine or the boards. All credit goes to the Crossfire Committee! Thank you all so very much! 

The Board is also grateful to Rob and David. Your recent years of leadership is appreciated and the board is grateful for your hard work and dedication. The board also offers congratulations to Mark and Julia as they take the reins of leadership of the Crossfire Committee. Our confidence in your leadership is assured. Thanks for stepping up. 

Congratulations and much Thanks to all Crossfire committee members!
