Happy Memorial Day weekend! Before we share with you all the exciting ‘happenings’ going on around our communities, we want to take a moment to thank, honor and remember all of the soldiers who are serving, have served and those who’ve lost their lives while serving. 

 

We are forever grateful for our freedoms and thank you for all that you’ve done!
