Today's principle is
Kuumba (Creativity): To do always as much as we can, in the way we can, in order to leave our community more beautiful and beneficial than we inherited it.
When people hear the word "creative" some times there mind immediately goes to the performance and visual arts. Ms V wants to challenge everyone to expand their definition of creativity. For example, the Hillcrest Community Civic Association held a Wine Tasting and Art Auction fundraiser this year. There well attended event raised several thousands of dollars to support the programs of the civic association. The event was a result of meshing the ideas of a few creative people.
In 2012, my hope for the ward is that we "think outside of the box" to come up with new ways to accomplish different goals and objectives. It's not a rejection of the past (Ms V doesn't believe in reinventing the wheel), but taking what we've done in the past and making it better.
