2013 Year End

In this time of reflection, sharing, and holiday spirit we at Townsend Leather always like to take a moment and reflect on our year.  2013 was another exciting year in the world and in the world of Townsend.

Townsend Leather 2013 (93)

We encourage you to browse the past year of blog posts to see if you missed anything, or our company news feed – to keep up on some of the noteworthy moments at Townsend in 2013.

You can see a brief photographic glance at some moments of 2013 at Townsend Leather below.  But as we look back on 2013, we also want to look forward to 2014 with hope, and so we leave you with these words – a “Message from the President of Townsend Leather”…


As we begin 2014 in these still uncertain times, I am moved by a Theodore Roosevelt quote that inspired the title for Brene Brown’s book, Daring Greatly.

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better.
The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena,
whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat. ”
– Theodore Roosevelt

I think we can all find inspiration in this message as we toil courageously in the year ahead, take creative risks, consider and try out new possibilities and endeavor each day to work passionately to our fullest potential.

To all of Townsend’s Partners: our employees, our customers, our suppliers: Let us all know in 2014 the triumph of high achievement, and together, let’s Dare Greatly.
