Tonight, Pat Bassett’s tenure with NAIS was celebrated in a reception where folks gathered around food and great conversation followed by the and award, friendly roasting and some wonderful words by Pat. He was accompanied by his family and many who have worked with Pat in many ways over the years. Included below is a small collection of images from the reception and a 5 minute video where Pat shared a wonderful philosophy lesson with everyone. If you ever wondered what golf balls, pebbles, sand and beer have in common, you will want to watch this to find out. You will walk away richer than you were 5 minutes before you watched Pat’s philosophy lesson.
