2016 Getting off to a Busy Start

                Greetings to all!  As I was reviewing my calendar for the next couple of months, I decided it would be a good time to announce all the upcoming events that might be of interest to you.  Lots of dates, times, and places will be listed, so if you want to clip this column and post it on your refrigerator for reference, feel free to do so!

Closing Thought

Don’t compare your life to others.  You have no idea what their journey is all about.
