Creating Excellence Together (CET) Accreditation

Together, we achieve more!

Today, May 16, 2022, the WIN staff were treated to a Dairy Queen icecream cake to celebrate our accomplishment of achieving 100% of the CET standards on our recent survey. Our board chair, Donna Fleming joined the meeting to celebrate our success, and she read us a lovely poem by Ella Wheeler Wilcox to express her, and the board’s appreciation for the work we do.

WIN staff are lifters – Thank YOU to each and every one of our amazing staff!            

TWO KINDS OF PEOPLE

There are two kinds of people on earth to-day;

Just two kinds of people, no more I say.

Not the sinner and saint, for it’s well understood

The good are half bad and the bad are half good.

Not the rich and the poor, for to rate a man’s wealth,

You must first know the state of his conscience and health.

Not the humble and proud, for in life’s little span,

Who puts on vain airs, is not counted a man.

Not the happy and sad, for the swift flying years

Bring each man his laughter end each man his tears.

No; the two kinds of people on earth I mean

Are the people who lift and the people who lean.

Wherever you go you will find the earth’s masses

Are always divided in just these two classes.

And oddly enough, you will find, too, I ween,

There’s only one lifter to twenty who lean.

In which class are you? Are you easing the load

Of overtaxed lifters who toil down the road?

Or are you a leaner who lets others bear

Your portion of labor and worry and care? 

Ella Wheeler Wilcox
