I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas. It’s unbelievable how fast 2017 has gone by. It seems like yesterday we were starting to prepare for this year, getting ready to make our list of goals, evaluating the things we did in 2016… And now, pretty much with the blink of an eye, we’re doing the same thing, but heading to 2018! Where has time gone? As the years pass by us, it’s always important to keep our loved ones in our minds and hearts, and always show them how much we care. Wishing you a great, prosperous, blissful, healthy, bright, delightful, energetic and extremely Happy New Year. Michele Bell, PIO
