Madonna Learning Center (MLC)

The 49th annual Christmas Play sold out at Germantown Performing Arts Center (GPAC) for 3 performances and stole everyones hearts another year! Another great gift to the community.
For the 6th year in a row, GPAC has graciously been the home for the MLC Christmas Play. This year the students and adults provided the “Light” to share with everyone for this Holiday Season. With dance pieces from, “O Holy Night” , “This Little Light of Mine”, to Justin Timberlake’s, “Can’t Stop the Feeling”. The Show was a constant reminder of how unique, and remarkable the students and staff at MLC truly are.

One of the trainees in the Adult Program, told her Mother after one of the performances, “Mom, I’m just so happy! I love my life, and I never want to leave Madonna!”

Get ready for next year, as Madonna Learning Center prepares for their 50th Anniversary Show. It’ll surely be one you won’t want to miss.

Amazon’s Past Reveals the Future of FedEx

I was sitting down with a friend who works in sales at FedEx a few years ago and I brought up the question of Amazon replacing FedEx as a dominant player in shipping. My friend said that would never happen. FedEx isn’t worried about Amazon. At that time Amazon Prime was new. Amazon had just purchased a fleet of jets and trailers for shipping. A look at Amazon’s past was like the handwriting on the wall for me.
