The beginning of a new year is always a good time to catch up and check in. This year it seems to be particularly appropriate to check in and take stock of the whole philosophy behind the Wisdom|crew.

What started out in 2017 as a chance to get a “Senior Discount” at one local merchant (Thank you John Irwin of B. D. Riley’s) grew to be something else again. We cast a wide net and 128 people from Mueller and surrounding neighborhoods chipped in $10.00 for a “Wisdom|crew Card”.

From weekly meetings for all members at B. D. Riley’s Irish Pub, a women’s group, a twice weekly walking group the pandemic pushed us into weekly Zoom meetings for a small group of regulars and a small group of women. We missed the annual B. D. Rileys Christmas Party (64 people turned out in 2019).

Now it is time to think about where we all want to go with the Wisdom|crew.

I would like to have an open discussion about opportunities to use our group to “Build Community” which is our Neighborhood Association by line. Wisdom|crew members have been and continue to be active in the governing body of the MNA.

How many of you want a new card?

Discounts: If there is enough demand to continue we will work with our merchants to figure out something post-pandemic to make the card have value.

Gatherings: Restaurants, walking, biking/triking, book club, bridge group, … let me know what makes sense to you…and if you are interested in being the point person for the effort.

One of the things there is some interest for is a “Tool/Services Sharing Library” in the neighborhood. That may be a great way to kick off the next year.

Don’t just delete this message, please respond either positively or otherwise and let’s create the world we want to live in.

Preston “Ty” Tyree and Ani Colt
