 A MESSAGE FROM OUR   PRESIDENT
 As we round out the year with these last few months, I encourage you all to do something for others. The holiday season is a joyous and exciting times for some but for others it is the hardest time of the year. Be kind to each other you never know what someone is going through. Remember to give back to your community and embrace those around you.
