  • PRESIDENT'S CORNER: June 30, 2017

    Friday, June 30, 2017

    Independence Day! Snap, crackle, pop…BOOM! Next Tuesday is the 4th of July and my 48th wedding anniversary. We thought it would be great to always have a holiday and fireworks to celebrate our life together. Thank God we still like each other, yes? When the 4th would fall on the weekend, we used to enjoy going to D.C. to see the fireworks on the mall, until we got there one year and the humidity and heat was hellish…no more of that! Anyway…Do have a safe and sane 4th and celebrate our nation’s birth with a bang.
