Hello, everybody! Hard to believe May is almost just a memory at this point. Next thing you know, we’ll be putting away the kiddie pools and the barbecue grills and getting out the leaf blowers again!
Hope you get the chance to spend some quality time this weekend with your family and friends celebrating the unofficial start of the summer season. Whether you’re gathering around the neighborhood swimming hole, cooking up a mess of ribs and burgers, or heading out of town with the family, take a minute to reflect on the true meaning of the holiday weekend.
Our love and gratitude go out to our brave servicemen and women who fight to keep us free, and our deepest heartfelt respect to those who’ve made the ultimate sacrifice in the name of liberty and freedom.
Among the fine folks ‘round town blowing out birthday candles this week are Noah Pearce, enjoying a big ol’ slice of cake May 22, Tammy Jowers, sporting a snazzy paper chapeau May 26 and Vickie Brown, surrounded by family and friends May 29.
